She said the town's board was the first combined planning and redevelopment authority in Massachusetts, established in 1971. Members of the board discussed the implications of the report, and one member asked whether the Mugar site could fall under urban renewal (she said it can).

Read a meeting summary by Steve Revilak, a Precinct 1 Town Meeting member who is a member of the board about which he writes. These are his personal meeting notes.
