For those of you who are following the issue of the Silver Maple Forest, I want to report a small step forward.
I am writing to provide an update for those who are concerned about preserving the Silver Maple Forest or Belmont Uplands property. A group met last week with Governor Patrick to discuss the issue.
I’m writing to you to urge that you weigh in with the Patrick administration and let them know how you feel about saving the Belmont Uplands.
The Joint Committee on Bonding, Capital Expenditures and State Assets gave our bill to acquire the Belmont Uplands a hearing yesterday and the hearing accomplished our initial goal: to make the proposal visible on the radar screen of capital planners in the legislature.
