Zoning Hearing on Bioterrorism Lab Wed Jan 12 9am
Boston Zoning Commission Hearing!

Wednesday, January 12, 2005, 9 AM

Boston City Hall, Room 900

Zoning hearing on the Bioterrorism Lab

The Boston Zoning Commission is going to vote on the petition to approve the BioSquare Phase II PDA Master Plan (which includes the BU Bioterrorism Lab), the amendments to the zoning district, and the development plan for the location.

It is another -- and perhaps the last -- opportunity to convince a city entity to stop the project or at least put the project on hold until there can be a more detailed review and public debate about the merits of the bioterrorism lab as compared to other development possibilities for the location.

If you have the time, please go to the hearing and ask the Zoning Commission to vote against the petition or to table the petition until the federal NEPA process is completed and there is a better and more detailed review of the laboratory.

The hearing process will be the same as at the BRA Board hearing. First city staff make a presentation, then BU makes a presentation, then those who favor the petition can speak, then those who oppose the petition can speak.  Then the Zoning Commission may take a short break and hear from its lawyer and then vote on the petition.
