Today is Friday, Jan. 27. Here are five things you need to know:
1. And our misplaced spring continues. Weather.com predicts that temperatures today will hit 52(!) under rainy skies. The precipitation should end and the clouds should break up around evening rush hour, but the wind will likely be significant all day.
2. Rutherford meeting. The Charlestown Neighborhood Council will conduct an informational community meeting about the development located at 50 Rutherford Avenue (the Cushman house) on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Plans for the site include the demolition of the current structure and construction of eight townhouse condominiums. The meeting is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at the Mary Colbert Apartments Community Room, 20 Devens St. All interested residents are invited to attend. Feel free to call 617-242-3771 with any questions or concerns.
3. What do you have against Downtown Crossing/Chinatown? The is still open, and the results keep shifting, but enough of you think that Downtown Crossing/Chinatown is the rudest neighborhood in Boston that it has been staying at the lead of the pack. Anyone care to offer an explanation?
4. Results: majority opposes any expansion at 40 Warren. This is one of those places where our “this is not a scientific poll” disclaimer is important, but, with more than 100 people weighing in, any growth of the 40 Warren Project that would take it outside of current zoning. Keep watching, though: at one point, our voters favored no expansion by a 4:1 ratio. Now, it’s not even 2:1.
5. Office hours. If you want to talk to a local official, today is the day to do it: Neighborhood Liaison , State Sen. and State Rep. will all be in Charlestown today.
