Supreme Court Rules in Favor of EL&C Client

The Supreme Judicial Court issued an important urban renewal decision on March 15, 2013, ruling in favor of our client, the Boston Redevelopment Authority.  The SJC held that Long Wharf in Boston may be developed in accordance with the BRA’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.
