Lafuente on Land Use?! Come on. He'll toe the mayor's line of over-development everywhere they can get it. Right now, the city wants to change Wilson Square, especially Elm St., from residential to commercial. It doesn't technically touch Ward 5 but comes awfully close.

The residents (including me) are completely PO'ed because the city's argument is, revenue over residents apparently. Most of the Planning Board seem to be on the city's side but we hope they will come around next week at the vote.

Guarantee Mr. Lafuente and Mr. O'Donovan will side with the revenue when it reaches the BOA. By the way, there still is no proposal to do anything with Magoun Square (which really needs redevelopment).
