More than $5.9k raised at fair to support Mugar project opponents
UPDATED Oct. 27: The Coalition to Save the Mugar Wetlands has set an initial target of $50,000 to support the efforts of the residents of East Arlington who filed suit last year to prevent the construction of Thorndike Place, a 124-unit, four-floor rental building near documented wetlands.
Since June 30, the group has raised $15,515 via Go Fund Me.
The neighborhood fair and yard sale, held Saturday, Oct. 15, raised more than $5,900 for this effort. Read the details here >>
Arlington Town Meeting and the Select Board do not support this development. Neighborhood residents say they have spent about $18,000 in legal fees to date.
