FMR opposes Upper Harbor Terminal plan, calls for more community engagement

Since the Upper Harbor Terminal is publicly owned, the city has complete control over what's developed here and the process used to determine its future. This is a rare opportunity for the city and park board to adopt a planning process that truly engages neighborhood residents and community stakeholders as co-creators and partners alongside developers, city and park board staff.

We support residents' calls for a process that serves the larger socioeconomic goals of the community. In such a process, community participants would have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the constraints as well as the possibilities of the site to address community needs.
