I didnt go but heard on twitter they stacked the room with supporters. Only a couple dissenters. I wish I had the chance to go unfortunately I couldnt. I've heard people can still write letters until the 17th, we should all get one in!

I was there, and had a few pointed things to say to Mr. Druker and the nice gentlemen from the BPDA. Some in the audience seemed pleased with my thoughts. After the meeting, I chatted with staff from the Boston Preservation Alliance, and a handful of younger folks with an interest in maintaining the architectural integrity of Boylston Street.

Of humorous note, a key person from Boston Properties came over and spoke to me as well. He was excited to tell me how he and his team worked so hard to imbue The Hub on Causeway with historic character; I politely told him that aesthetically speaking, it was my least favorite large project in this development cycle.

(NB: I'll post meetings and events, and recap my involvement to the extent that they help with preservation efforts here and elsewhere, but otherwise, I'll be maintaining radio silence until Edward addresses concerns on content ownership and control.)
