City Hall Meeting Outcomes

Post date: May 22, 2018 12:10:35 AM

On May 16, four representatives of the Roslindale Wetlands Task Force met at City Hall with property owners Brendan and Greg Feeney and Michael Ahern. The gathering was facilitated by City Councilor Tim McCarthy and his chief of staff, Lee Blasi.

The Task Force requested that the owners hold off for six months from any further actions to advance the project with the city so that potential alternatives can be explored to preserve the land as green space. The owners indicated that they would consider our request to hold.

As a follow-up to the meeting, the Task Force presented the signed petitions to the owners, which includes more than 1,100 signatures from our online petition as well as pen-and-ink signatures from abutters and nearby residents. We also presented a composite map that overlays a 2005 wetlands delineation with the most recent development proposal (below).

Full letter to the owners is attached as a PDF and also available via Dropbox.
