Assembly Square Land Swap Discussion June 17

Mayor Joe Curtatone, Rep. Tim Toomey, Aldermen Walter Pero and Bill
Roche, and Senator Pat Jehlen invite you to a public meeting about the
proposed land swap at Assembly Square. The on-site meeting will be
Tuesday, June 17 at 6:30 on the DCR pathway across from Christmas Tree
Shops at Assembly Square. In case of inclement weather, a tent will be
provided.

Federal Realty Investment Trust will present development plans, and
the exchange of a parcel currently owned by the Department of
Conservation and Recreation for a slightly larger strip along the
river which FRIT will develop into DCR parkland. FRIT will also
discuss access to Draw 7 Park, and proposals for easements.
Legislation to accomplish the land swap is currently before the
legislature. Community members are invited to learn about the
process and plans for community investment and mitigation. There
will be a chance to ask questions and raise concerns.
