Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
This is a letter that I had sent to Aldermen Sullivan regarding the lot next to Super Stop & Stop on McGrath Highway. Please follow up on this if you could.
Good afternoon Mr. Sullivan,
I was directed to you by Mr. Niedergang regarding a question I had on Cross Street East. Someone had bought the parking lot next to Super Stop and Shop along with the dilapidated playground at the end of the street.
They have also taken that last part of Cross Street East itself and placed gating there. They are storing their equipment and materials, fill, in the old park area.
My questions are:
Did the City sell the park land to this Developer?
B. How Much
C. Who is the Developer/Owner of the entire property
Was this approved by the BOA due to the City selling land to an Individual?
If so, what account within the City was this tasked too? General Fund or an earmark specifically for future use?
Mr. Sullivan, I am just trying to figure out why this City would sell valuable land, we are land poor, for housing or commercial development when what we need is more green space.
Thank you for all you help.
81 Hudson Street
