The hearing for the Winthrop Square Home Rule Petition is scheduled for:
Monday, April 24, 2017
Boston City Hall, 5th Floor, Ianella Chamber
The proposed Winthrop Square development while replacing a former downtown parking garage with a more active mixed use building violates State laws protecting the parks' sunlight and sets a precedent that encourages exchanging a one-time infusion of funds for an exemption that creates a blueprint for future developers and permanent negative impacts on the parks.
