To the Editor:
I was the local official that was in charge of the agency that relocated 125 people and numerous businesses in the redevelopment area. It was also my duty to start the process where we acquired 76 buildings and demolished 75 that the federal and state governments had ruled substandard. One building was rehabilitated and became the Hull Medical Center.
After the 1978 blizzard, I was the government official in charge of the insurance team that represented the federal and state governments. We assisted almost one thousand families in Hull and tried to make Hull whole again.
Outside of two combat tours on the battle field fighting for democracy and returning to the states to instruct cadets at West Point to defend democracy, I have lived in my neighborhood where the Local 02045 restaurant is located since 1932. My parents and grandparents have lived here before me.
On Tuesday, April 19, I received a letter from the Hull Planning Board telling me of a public hearing on Wednesday, April 27, 2022. It instructs recipients to go on the Internet and get the information about the meeting. Like many older people, I am not on the Internet.
I called one of my nieces, she went on the Internet and told me it didn’t say where the hearing will be held.
The hearing is on an amendment to the site plan for the restaurant know as Local 02045. It is something that is of the utmost concern to our neighborhood.
