Dear Sir & Madam,
The Charlestown Waterfront Coalition supports with great pleasure the
EPA/MBTA plan to provide a Mystic Riverâs waterâs edge easement
[behind the MBTA Bennett Garage, from Route 99 to Assembly Square].
We believe the community benefits from that plan are incalculable, and
we urge you to complete the planning effort required in a timely
manner. It is our understanding that the deadline for completing the
plan has been extended, and we urgently request you to meet the deadline.
In closing, please know how encouraged we are by the community
responsiveness of DCR staff.. The last months have been most refreshing.

- I'm looking at the map on http://pathfriends.org/. Really drives home
just how nicely the Charlestown path ties into into MysticCrossing/B2C.
If it happens we wind up with a nearly direct route from Medford, Malden
and Everett to Cambridge (incl. Kendall) and downtown Boston. What a
fantastic way to beat traffic. I bet it'd get a LOT of use.
