Have you visited the beautiful and historic Long Wharf Park on Boston Harbor? And what do you do when the government goes rogue?
The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA), in defiance of the Massachusetts Constitution, is trying to turn Long Wharf Park into a late-night restaurant and bar. The Massachusetts Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Legislature before public parkland can be converted to other uses. The vote has not happened, and the BRA is telling the world that it is unneeded. As featured in today's Boston Globe, ten local residents, including me, have been trying to force the government to obey the constitution.
