I think it will be a huge "Education" for the MassPols and Bureaucrats to see a public project done in -- Casino-Time -- very similar to "Google-Time" -- but involving more public-centric projects
It looks like they've actually filed for permits for the bridge: https://everettindependent.com/2019/...-cycle-bridge/

We'll see how fast it progresses - they're hoping for construction to start in early 2020 and be completed within 18 months. I'd imagine community support would not be an issue for this project.

Also, welcome back.

You are Welcome

Thanks for your [Fox] and others for your welcome on my return

As to the timetable -- there is one reference in the Everett Independent to environment and placing new piers in the River -- that might be one sticking point

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I like the sentiment expressed by Maddox in the article... and I know he has been a bit busy, but it would be good to see an actual plan for their properties across the street come together in the next 6 months to a year.

Without a timeline for a plan it feels a bit like they are just squatting to prevent other hotels from being built across the street. Which is fine with me as long as they themselves invest there.
