Ops-Core / Gentex Meeting Recap

Thanks to Sara from the Midway Studios Residents group for this recap of the meeting:

Fort Point Channel residents who agree that an industrial production facility does not belong in a 24/7 artists’ residential building were supported in their opinion by elected officials at last Tuesday night’s community wide meeting.
Senator Jack Hart, Councilor Felix Arroyo and Representative Nick Collins all spoke in opposition to Ops-Core's planned industrial facility location in Midway Studios’ theatre space.
Midway Residents and neighbors of Channel Center and Fort Point also voiced support for retaining Midway Studios’ theater space an arts cultural civic space. The Fort Point Arts Community and Fort Point Cultural Coalition added their endorsement that Ops-Core’s factory use does not fit within the approved use of the residential artists' building and the importance of preserving the 20,000 square feet of arts civic space at Midway Studios for Fort Point and the City of Boston.
City Chief Planner Kairos Shen confirmed that the current stop work order, issued by Inspectional Services Department on February 23, will remain in effect. City Planner Shen also stated he will convey the community's views to Mayor Menino and Boston Redevelopment Authority Director Peter Meade.
