REPRESENTATIVE TYLER CALLS ON MAYOR WALSH TO TAKE ACTION ON ROXBURY DEVELOPMENT PLANS

REPRESENTATIVE TYLER CALLS ON MAYOR WALSH TO TAKE ACTION ON ROXBURY DEVELOPMENT PLANS
RSMPOC still votes 6-3 in favor of plans opposed by the community
“State Rep. Chynah Tyler looks on as the oversight committee votes to disperse public owned land in Roxbury.” (Property of the committee to elect Chynah Tyler)
BOSTON - July 3, 2018 - The 6-3 vote by the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan Oversight Committee (RSMPOC) in favor of the highly anticipated “Plan Dudley” Request for Proposals (RFPs) released by the Department of Neighborhood Development of the City of Boston was another blow to the housing crisis in the Roxbury neighborhood.
Last night, State Representative Chynah Tyler attended the RSMPOC meeting and shared a letter (available here) she recently penned to Mayor Marty Walsh regarding an overwhelming amount of constituent inquiries concerning future of public owned land in Roxbury. She also witnessed everyresident who attended the meeting provide input which clearly opposed the vote. At one point, some even pleaded with the RSMPOC to postpone the vote or to at least vote “no”.
Despite the shared opposition of the community, the RSMPOC still voted, “yes”. Both the outcome of the vote and the way the City of Boston, BPDA, and DND disposes of publicly owned land is deeply troubling as it reinforces the community’s distrust of the process. “In order to practice good government we must ensure that the community has a voice throughout process and I look forward to seeing how the city and its agencies work to address this alarming issue.”
