From the Helm: Before you scream and yell, research the process behind development agreements

The One Harbor Point proposed development seems to especially get residents’ blood boiling due to the fact it is located in a fairly wooded spot that represents the entryway of downtown for those coming from the south on Soundview Drive — and the fact the project’s developers are proposing a list of several deviations from the city’s development standards for that specific zone.

From the Helm: Is there an out-of-the-box solution to PSD overcrowding situation?

Back in December, there was talk at a school board meeting about the assembling of a group of concerned citizens from the community to visit various sites throughout the district and access the condition of buildings, classrooms and other facilities students inhabit every day.
