Mirant & the boardwalk... a story of broken commitments...

Mirant & the boardwalk... a story of broken commitments...

Here we are at the beginning, end, of an interesting story. The Mirant Corporation a good neighbor?
As my friend and fellow blogger Will has pointed out in his blog,
(http://cctvcambridge.org/node/2043) Mirant will be coming to the BZA for the last time on Nov 8. For details of the issue again please read his blog.
Over the next few weeks we will cover the story from a neighborhood perspective... getting the point of views of all concerned parties. But before I start I will have to acknowledge that I'm a biased party. I believe the boardwalk that was a mitigation for East Cambridge, in order for Mirant to expand, should be build. I believe Mirant has not offered any compeling reasons why it shouldn't. I believe either Mirant wants to evades its responsibilities or a deeper darker problem is the reason why they do not want to build the boardwalk.
Over the course of the story, i'll try to give all voices equal opportunities ... i'll truly try to be 'fair and balance'... but you'll have to excuse me if at time, i'm not...

So please keep coming back and do post your comments and opinions, picture and links... this is one more place to get your voice heard...on a very consequential issue...

thx,

I think that you and Will are doing an excellent job in bringing this issue to our attention - I knew nothing about it. Am wondering whether some of your East Cambridge colleagues want to weigh in here on your blogs. I'm thinking that it is not critical that you make sure that you are being fair and unbiased, but if you acknowledge that you are a stakeholder in this process, a resident who has something to win or lose in this situation, then you are doing justice to the issue. The other stakeholders can and should be encouraged to partcipate in the discussion here.

Great job!
