Don't Worry, Boston, Winter Will Show Up; Blighted Areas

HUB-WIDE—Sure it's nice out, but we could still repeat last year's snowy horrors. "Remember: Winter has not even begun yet (it starts Dec. 21.), and last year's first meaningful snowfall didn't come until late January." [Globe]
BOSTON—The Boston Redevelopment Authority is closer to keeping certain blighted-but-not-really areas just so: "The BRA board of directors voted to extend for 10 years the agency's urban renewal powers over a big chunk of the city, including parts of downtown, the South End, and Charlestown that have improved dramatically since the program was launched five decades ago. Now the matter will head to the Boston City Council, likely next month." [Globe]
