White Stands Ground on Union Square Revitalization
Citing uncertainty about the Green Line Extension and the economic future of the world, White continued to stand his ground by opposing Thursday night’s bond request for $8 Million to purchase the D2 parcel meant to kick start the revitalization. Procedurally, the city can put the request through despite the fact that the plan is still being considered by the state’s Community and Housing Development Department. They have a little less than a month to decide.

White would be the only opposing vote on the matter as it was approved 10-1. Both Taylor and Gewirtz approved the bond request as it pertained to the D2 parcel which was the only portion of the plan they voiced their support of.
