CAMBRIDGE—The city's Planning Board was set to vote on 75 New Street, a proposed 93-unit residential complex in the Fresh Pond area. But! "Residents – including many from the newly formed Fresh Pond Residents Alliance who are concerned with the impact of development on the area's neighborhoods – filled a packed room in City Hall Annex. The board tried to change its procedures to guide public comment and increase the likelihood of reaching a decision, but instead galvanized angry crowd members who objected, fearing they would not be heard."

EAST BOSTON—Suffolk Downs poo-poohs those no-horse-racing rumors: "In that letter, the track officials said they would discontinue racing if it were to get in the way of a casino license. It's a letter that has now raised legitimate questions, but questions that track officials say are being answered without context. Now, those same officials are talking with numerous racing industry partners to let them know they are solid in their commitment." [Times-Free Press]
