Letter: Thayer Nursery and Milton’s bylaws

Letter to the Editor from Philip Joehenning

Lately, there has been a lot written in both the mainstream press and in social media concerning Thayer Nursery, the Town of Milton and my partner and me.  It is time for me to set the record straight with the facts of this case.

Overlooked in the debate over the rights of Thayer Nursery and its neighbors are Milton’s 1938 Zoning Bylaws.  The 76 year old Bylaws define strict land use requirements that have protected not only property owners, but the health and welfare of all citizens of Milton.

Letter from Tucker Principal Dr. Elaine McNeil-Girmai on Stay in Place order

February 7, 2014

Dear Families,

I am writing to inform you that this morning at approximately 10:30 a.m. a stay in place order was put in place at Tucker School. This order was prompted by a written threat found on a wall. The Milton Police Department came to Tucker School to investigate alongside school personnel. The stay in place order was lifted at approximately 11:10 a.m. The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Flight path review period extended

In response to concerns raised by Milton residents and Senator Brian A. Joyce, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has extended the review period for flight path changes at Runway 33L out of Boston Logan Airport from six months to one year. The extension will allow for the runway to be monitored in the busiest time of the year, the winter, when wind patterns often steer more departures to the runway and over the town of Milton.

Letter: Sen Joyce follow up on FAA flight path change (& related documents)

Dear Neighbor,

I wanted to let you know that the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) proposed flight path changes for Runway 33L of Logan Airport have gone into effect. However, to address the concerns raised by my constituents, the FAA has implemented an unprecedented six month review period regarding the flight path changes.
