The Word Around the Ward
Big congratulations to all candidates who dedicated their lives for the past few months running for office. 2014 is going to be an interesting year and I look forward to covering it all on Ward 5 Online.
The sudden resignation of Chief Pasquarello has sent waves throughout the City and already has the conspiracy theorists rumbling. I wish Tom and his family the best of luck and look forward to the process of hiring a new Chief.
215 Highland Avenue may be home to a new pizza place soon. The word around the ward is that an application is being sought to open the vacant storefront before the end of the year.
No word on what’s happening with 517 and 499 Medford Street in Magoun Square. 517 is set to be an ice cream/bakery with 499 slated to open as a Chinese eatery. Penny Packers has opened and is making quite an impression on residents with their eclectic menu and great prices.
Developers of the 235 Lowell Street project have requested a continuance until December 11th through the Zoning Board of Appeals. A 6-unit residential complex has been proposed for the space.
All are invited to City Hall on Friday November 8th at noon for a MIA-POW chair dedication. This chair joins 42 others throughout Massachusetts and will be placed by the City Clerks Office.
