Sanjoy Mahajan v. MA DEP and the BRA

In a March 15, 2013 ruling, the Supreme Judicial Court held that Long Wharf in Boston may be developed in accordance with the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s urban renewal plan, and is not a park subject to a two-thirds legislative vote under Article 97 for changes to lands taken for conservation purposes. The SJC also ruled that the issuance of a Chapter 91 license does not trigger a legislative vote under Article 97.
