Zoning Hearing for 49-63 Melcher and Russia Wharf, 2/4/2009

There will be a zoning hearing on 2/4/2008 for the 49-63 Melcher St. project. Notes from the last BRA meeting (short version: there were no changes to the plan from the one last Spring which the neighborhood was strongly opposed to, except that $600k was allocated to give 20-40 artists studio space at 319 A St. for two years).

On the same morning will also be a zoning hearing for Russia Wharf.
