Some residents have pushed for ground-level reconstruction, arguing that it would lower this barrier, reduce noise from vehicles revving uphill, and allow for more development in the future by creating decks over the roadways — while being the least costly of the three. “It just unlocks all these things,” said Harry Mattison, an Allston resident and member of a neighborhood task force working on the highway design. “Even if they’re not done as part of this project, they could still be done over time. But once you build a new highway viaduct, it’s there forever and you can never improve it.”

"Seeking to stem the tide of investors, Harvard [has] set aside $3 million of its community benefits package to support the All Bright Homeownership Program, an initiative to buy up homes in the area and resell them to homeowners with an owner-occupancy deed restriction, meaning that the buyer must live on the property. The program, implemented with the Allston Brighton Community Development Corporation and the City of Boston in 2015, has so far sold 13 housing units to homeowners. #homeownershipmatters

Today, we pause to celebrate and remember those who have served our country. Our newly redesigned Boston College Veterans Memorial website helps us honor those Eagles who made the ultimate sacrifice. Each veteran has a page, which shows his class year, military rank, and branch of service. Where available, there is also information on date of birth, hometown, military awards and decorations, and date and location of death. Some of the pages also have links to photos and images of documents and articles. For those on campus, our annual Boston College Veterans Remembrance Ceremony today begins at 11 a.m. Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio '73, who serves as the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA will be the speaker. He will preside and deliver the homily at the preceding Mass, which will be held at 9:30 a.m. in St. Ignatius Church. BC Jesuit Community Rector Robert Keane, S.J., part-time Philosophy Department Boston College faculty member Paul McNellis, S.J., and Jesuit Community member John Monahan, S.J.—all veterans—will concelebrate the Mass.
Spend the day with the Eagles! The Boston College Athletics men's and Boston College Women's Basketball teams host their season openers tomorrow at Conte Forum. The women tip-off at noon against Bryant University with the men taking on University of Maine at 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.BCEagles.com
