Jack Hart and BCEC Meeting about Gate Shows

When the BCEC was built, South Boston was promised there would be no "Boat Shows". These are shows which charge at the door and attract large crowds that drive into Boston.

In 2007?, the state pass new legislation to allow limited numbers of them. There's a meeting tomorrow night at the Condon school at 6 PM to discuss allowing more of them.

If you can't make it, please consider sending Senator Hart's office your thoughts:

Bob O'Shea, community liason for the Convention Center sent this today.

Hello All,

Sorry I didn't put a time for the meeting.

There will be a Community Meeting to discuss Gate Show legislation tomorrow night, 6PM at the Condon School.

As we have discussed at our T5 meetings, Senator Hart will discuss lowering the minimum size of a Gate Show at the BCEC from 250,000 square feet to 160,000 square feet.

MCCA officials will be in attendance to answer any questions.

Please make every effort to attend.
