Re: Silver Maple Upland Forest
Dear Mr. Simanes,
As a follow-up to our presentation to your committee on February 10, and also in response to your letter concerning the above development of February 27, 2003 and the March 3, 2003 hearing in front of the Cambridge Health & Environment Committee, the Save our Forest Committee (Forest Committee), a task force of the Friends of Alewife Reservation, wishes to submit this set of revised requests.
These requests as you know are in connection with our serious concerns with a large development by O'Neill Properties of Pennsylvania for the Frontage Road Office/R&D Center at the Belmont uplands. We feel that there will be significant impacts on both the City of Cambridge and the Mystic River watershed area, as outlined in our presentations at the above-noted public hearings.
Very truly yours,
David Hobbie, Attorney
Committee: Sue Bass, James Graves, Jennifer Griffith, Bryan Hamlin, Mark Kirk, Ed Koenig, Ernest Kirwan, Ellen Mass, Susan Watson, Peter Alden, Bruce Jacobs, John Moot, Elizabeth Grady
