Being an alcohol license and a new use that will draw many customers, many in the Association had expected to be able to hear about it beforehand.

“Any type of new programming, and especially plans for a licensed alcohol establishment, are typically announced to the neighborhood for a vetting before going public. In this case, it appears that didn’t happen because the beer garden would be on state land, not City land, said Old Dover President Ken Smith.” Not checking in with the neighborhood groups that helped force his open space to happen and outlined recommended uses is a mistake. When will they learn that keeping in touch and keeping folks informed will get them further every time.

    Neighborhood Disappointed by Ink Underground's Surprise Beer Garden
    What was exciting news for many who see great potential at the new Ink Underground park below the Expressway was a disappointing surprise for many in the Old Dover neighborhood - who apparently had no idea a licensed, outdoor beer garden would be coming to their neighborhood this summer.

An uptick in complaints to property managers and lawyers about pot smoke quite clearly shows the unhappiness of some neighbors and condo boards. Consider the issues coming into the Chelsea offices of the Lundgren Management Group, which manages about 40 condo associations in Greater Boston.

    It's a truth known by pot smokers in condos and apartments all over town. In the old days, it was the cops you had to look out for. But now that marijuana is legal, new narcs are walking the beat: Mr. and Mrs. Beasley from Unit 3B.
