Newton has a 99-year lease on the property from MassDOT.I was supportive of the Greenway plan when it was going through, but it had so much support in Newton, I didn’t feel the need to get seriously involved: plenty of others were getting it through. So I am completely ignorant of some key points. First, MassDOT still owns the ROW, right? If so, is there any specific legal process MassDOT must follow to convert it from greenway back to rail? Or is this a matter of pure politics?
