Conversation with my neighbor about a developer overstepping his bounds

Thursday: Special T.O.D. Meeting with City Council, MTA

I apologize if details are sketchy, but it's come to my attention that a special T.O.D. meeting open to the public will be held this Thursday, December 10th at 5:30pm, presumably somewhere in the Municipal Building.

I understand that the meeting is to address the concerns of a group called "Beacon Deserves Better."

This is the first I've heard of that group, if anyone can shed some light on any details of this meeting it would be appreciated by all, I'm sure.
