Why is there not more posting about the many events that show efforts to retain the preservation of the silver maple forest by Belmont, Arlington and Cambridge residents. And why do we not hear about the re-filing of the silver maple forest acquisition bill. After a 4 session trial with DEP on the matter, and the passing of many motions in Cambridge and a session with City Councilors and you and 15 other environmental leaders in our region with staff of EOEEA, we would think that the issue may be considered very alive and well on your land protection platform for 2009. Please let us know where you stand. Thanks for being willing to speak to the silver maple forest issue at the Democratic Convention recently in Springfield Mass. where the “open space” silver maple preservation issue passed as an amendment on the floor of the state convention under the topic of “urban wild” and “open space” preservation “by any means necessary”.
Please let we public know what you might consider doing about this important issue in your district so we can support your efforts.
