MRA Community Development Director Alex Pratt was at the Senior Center this week with information, guidelines and applications for funding through the CDBG program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Malden will receive a $1.35 million grant this year which will fund a range of programs that serve the city’s low-to-moderate-income residents. “About 35 percent of Malden’s Mayor Gary Christenson (left) and State Representative Paul Donato during the Valentine Derby hosted on February 9 by the Junior Aid Association of Malden.

(Courtesy of Twitter@Mayorof Malden) grant will go toward payments on Section 108 federal loans,” said Pratt, adding that the loans have been used to fund road repairs in low-to-moderate-income neighborhoods, the reconstruction of Lincoln Commons and renovations to the Senior Center. Although Malden has benefi ted from the 108 Loan Program, Pratt noted the loans have cut into the MRA’s ability to deploy CDBG funds to support other programs and services. Still, the MRA stretches the annual grant to fund zero interest loan programs for home repairs for low-to-moderate-income property owners and capital improvement projects that benefi t the city’s low-to-moderate-income population. “HUD allows us to use 15 percent of the total grant for public service programs,” said Pratt, adding that this year there will be about $200,000 in CDBG funds for public services that directly impact low-to-moderate-income residents. Every fi ve years, HUD requires CDBG recipients to outline priorities and strategies to fight poverty in a in a consolidated plan. In the MRA’s new fi ve-year plan for 2020-2024, the preservation and development of affordable housing, rehabilitation of existing housing and support for homebuyers continue to be priorities. In other priority areas, Pratt said, the plan includes a new emphasis on climate resiliency, economic justice and support for immigrant communities. For example, the 2020-2024 plan calls for public services and programs to remove language barriers, increase accessibility, improve public health, promote climate adaptation and environmental justice and support economic opportunity for the city’s low-to-moderate-income residents, particularly immigrants, children, seniors, domestic violence survivors and people with disabilities. The plan also prioritizes improvements to parks, public facilities and infrastructure that increase accessibility, resiliency to climate change and address other issues that disproportionately aff ect low-to-moderate-income residents. The new plan continues to prioritize economic development to provide opportunities to low-to-moderate-income residents. But unlike the MRA’s 2015 plan that focused on the potential of Malden’s downtown revitalization to generate good jobs with higher wages, the new plan calls for job readiness, skills training and small business support to address income inequality and to provide economic opportunities for residents and households that earn less than 50 percent of the area median income of $113,300. According to Pratt, 40 percent of Malden residents fall into that group. Pratt explained that local groups applying for funding for a public service program need to highlight how their proposals address at least one of the priorities outlined in the new five-year plan, which is available on the MRA website. Applications for public services funding must also show that that the proposed program will provide a new service or a quantifi - able increase in an existing service that will make a signifi cant diff erence to Malden residents with the greatest needs. Public service programs that received CDBG funding last year in include Communitas, a family swim program for low-to-moderate-income, developmentally disabled children, the Youth Harbors program, which off ers supCDBG | SEE PAGE 7

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 14, 2020 City Council puts off vote on housing trust appointments By Barbara Taormina T he City Council postponed a scheduled vote on two appointments to the board of the city’s Aff ordable Housing Trust Fund. The Personnel and Appointments Committee voted last week to recommend that the full council approve Mayor Gary Christenson’s appointments of Brian Slater and Angie Liou to the Housing Trust Fund board. Councillors did, however, have questions about the appointments. Slater lives in Melrose and Liou is a resident of Boston, and according to the city’s municipal code, anyone appointed to a board or commission must be a Malden resident. Exceptions to the residency requirement include those employed before 1999, school teachers, non-clerical employees of the Planning Board, the physician appointed to the Board of Health and people appointed by the mayor and the council “who have been designated to serve by virtue of their employment with the city.” The assistant city solicitor, who was at last week’s personnel committee meeting, said the city’s ordinance on appointments is ambiguous, and suggested committee members move forward with the appointments while the legal department reviews questions and prepares an opinion. “We voted unanimously to approve their appointments, but subsequent questions have come up,” said Personnel Committee Chair Ward 1 Councillor Peg Crowe this week. Crowe asked the council to table their vote on the appointments until more answers are available. Slater and Liou have extensive experience with aff ordable housing. Slater, a vice president of East Boston Savings Bank who had a hand in developing Forestdale Park, serves as the treasurer for Housing Families. Liou is the executive director of the Asian Community Development Corporation, which preserves and develops affordable housing primarily for members of the Greater Boston Asian community, including residents of Malden. Over the past week, a lot of criticism of the appointments of Slater and Liou has been buzzing through the city. Some feel the appointments violate an ordinance that is anything but ambiguous. Others question why the city would appoint nonresidents to oversee a fund that will be partially supported by Malden taxpayers via the city’s Community Preservation fund. An online poll posted on Malden (MA) Politics asked if Malden should allow nonresidents to serve on Malden Boards and Commission. Among those who responded, 112 said no, 21 said it depends and six people said yes. City searches for the deed to Trafton Park By Barbara Taormina A $400,000 state grant for improvements to Trafton Park is on hold while the city searches for proof that the city owns the land.

Rosetti said he and City Solicitor Kathryn Fallon have been digging through city records that go back to the 1800s in search of the city’s title to Trafton Park. “We have literally gone into the archives at the library to look at old assessment records, old valuation lists, old street lists to the point where our hands are literally caked with the dust and dirt of reviewing these volumes,” Rosetti told councillors. The legal department has also hired a title examiner to research the title at the Registry of Deeds. The examiner is also researching probate fi les to see if claims could be made by owners of abutting parcels.

Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow, who along with Ward 6 Councillor David Camell worked with residents to develop the Trafton Park master plan, stressed there is a $400,000 on the line. “If we can’t find the piece of the puzzle, can the city claim the land by adverse possession?” asked Winslow, adding that the city has been using the land as a park for as long as anyone can remember. Adverse possession allows a person or entity that doesn’t have legal title to property to acquire ownership based on continuous use and occupation of the land. Rosetti said there are other options the city could consider, but he warned that they would take time. MRA Community Development Director Alex Pratt has been updating EEA on the city’s title search. Although the state will eventually need certifi cation of ownership, Pratt said it’s possible that the design phase of the park project will be able to move forward if the city has a time frame for whatever resolution on the title that it intends to pursue. The $400,000 grant will cover the design and construction of phase 1 improvements to the park, which include expanding play areas, upgrading the ballfi eld and improving accessibility. “The state has shown a willingness to work with us,” said Pratt, adding that EEA wants to see the project succeed. “They know we own the park, we know we own the park; we’re just trying to fi nd the piece of paper that says what everyone knows,” said Pratt. 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com In House Dental Plan for $399 (Cleanings, X-Rays, Exams twice a year and 20% OFF Dental work) Schedule your FREE Consultations today

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 14, 2020 Page 3 Baker-Polito Administration announces construction will begin to complete Northern Strand Community Trail $13.7 million construction contract awarded to R. Zoppo Corp. O n February 7, the Executive Offi ce of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA), along with the Cities of Everett, Lynn, Malden and Revere and the Town of Saugus, announced that construction on remaining sections of the Northern Strand Community Trail will begin. The completed project will result in a transportation and recreation corridor of about 11.5 miles from the Mystic River to the Lynn shoreline, connecting the communities of Everett, Malden, Revere, Saugus and Lynn. Through EEA’s Gateway City Parks program, the Baker-Polito Administration has invested more than $15 million to design, permit and construct the Northern Strand. “The Baker-Polito Administration has made expanding access to the Commonwealth’s outdoor resources a priority, and the Northern Strand is a terrifi c example of that work in action,” said EEA Secretary Kathleen Theoharides. “Trails connect communities, off er recreational and transit opportunities while providing signifi cant environmental benefi ts, and we are proud to support this project, which will provide greater mobility and access to Massachusetts’ great outdoors for residents in these Gateway Cities.” “Now, more than ever, trails such as the Northern Strand can provide an important travel corridor for the public to get to destinations,” said Transportation Secretary/CEO Stephanie Pollack. “The Northern Strand Community Trail will encourage more walking and bicycling for people trying to reach retail areas, schools and other locations. This project is an example of how we can achieve the visions and goals set forth in the State Bicycle and State Pedestrian Plans. We have to give more people more choices for travel and this trail does that.” The $13.7 million construction contract has been awarded to R. Zoppo Corporation through a public bidding process. Construction operations have begun with field work starting in early 2020, and full construction activities will commence in early spring. In addition to constructing remaining sections of the trail, R. Zoppo Corporation will make additional improvements to existing sections. The construction work will be observed in the fi eld by Stantec Inc., with construction administration services being provided under the leadership of Brown Richardson + Rowe, which was – together with Stantec – hired by EEA to design and permit the Northern Strand on *BEDROOM SETS *DINING ROOM SETS *KITCHEN SETS ASHLEY SOFA 781-321-7700 DISCOUNT FURNITURE COMPLETE LINE OF QUALITY FURNITURE AT LOW PRICES *SOFA / LOVE SEATS *TABLES & CHAIRS *COMPUTER DESKS $399.00 ASHLEY BEDROOM SETS 895.95 $ LAYAWAY PLANS AVAILABLE 42 Willow St., Malden, Ma. behalf of the fi ve communities. The contract is being administered by the City of Revere on behalf of all fi ve communities. Project updates and projected work schedules will be shared with the public via the City of Revere website and social media outreach. Construction crews, fencing and signage along the trail corridor will be visible during the construction process, which may limit access at times. Temporary trail closures are possible in order to accommodate the logistics of various work activities. Construction plans will prioritize public safety during heavy construction while balancing opportunities to maintain public access to portions of the trail where possible. “I am excited to see that we are one step closer towards the expansion of the Northern Strand Community Path through Lynn becoming a reality,” said Lynn Mayor Thomas M. McGee. “The realization of this project has been a collaborative eff ort throughout the years between state and local officials, community groups and residents. I look forward to the day in the very near future when our residents can enjoy this family-friendly recreational path.” “The Northern Strand Community Trail is not only a wonderful recreational escape for people in the densely-populated cities north of Boston, its completion will provide an important component of alternative transportation as the region addresses vehicular traffi c congestion on the North Shore,” said Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo. “The extension fulfi lls the dream of a ‘Bike to the Sea’ link from Boston to the seashore. The trail will complement the new development happening in Revere and other North Shore communities and contribute to healthy lifestyles that benefi t everyone. Intrepid commuters may choose to ride a bike from the North Shore into Boston – instead of sitting in traffi c. For almost all of the way into Boston, the Northern Strand Community Trail will provide a scenic alternative path to their destination.” “Malden greatly appreciates the work and investment being made by the Governor’s Gateway City Parks team that will double the paved length of the Northern Strand Trail and fully realize the vision of the fi ve communities and the Commonwealth to connect our neighborhoods to our waterfronts, schools, parks and businesses and beyond via a bike and pedestrian trail,” said Malden Mayor Gary Christenson. “We are excited to progress into the construction phase of this project, bringing us one step closer to providing safer, more secure pathways for residents and visitors to use and enjoy,” said Saugus Town Manager Scott Crabtree. “We are proud to move forward with this design that incorporated feedback from residents which was gathered during two public meetings. During the meetings, members of the public had multiple opportunities to learn about the project, ask questions, and share ideas.

I’m humbled and excited to be the lead vote-getter among a selection of passionate advocates for our District. I thank Wakefield Town Councilor Ann McGonigle Santos and Mat Helman for stepping forward to represent us and look forward to working with them moving forward. So many of you made a difference in this campaign – attending events, canvassing, dropping literature, making phone calls, donating financially, and holding signs – and I am immensely grateful. I’m also proud to have received the endorsements of so many elected officials in the Disthe role government can play in supporting individuals and their families. Most of all, thank you to my husband Mark and our sons Harrison and Oscar for being with me on this effort. I could not have done this without you. On his deathbed, the late ConKate Lipper-Garabedian trict and of the Environmental League of Massachusetts. Many notes, texts, hugs of encouragement, and warm welcomes when I arrived at your doors (more than 1,000 personally) really mattered, too. Together, we worked to ensure that the 32nd Middlesex District is represented by someone who believes passionately about gressman John D. Dingell shared, “In a democratic government, elected officials do not have power. They hold power – in trust for the people who elected them.” While on the campaign trail, that principle has been front of mind for me. It will remain so as we move forward together and build on our collective work to date. I ask for your support on Tuesday, March 3, so that our District continues to be represented by someone who listens carefully, works hard, and gets things done. Reserve Now for Valentine’s Day! City plans pilot program for translation services By Barbara Taormina C ity Councillors support the plan to offer translations of their dockets and meeting minutes, but they want more time to consider a program proposed this week by the Citizens Engagement Committee. Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria, who chairs the committee, outlined a four-month pilot program that would offer translations upon request through the city website. Bay State Interpreters would provide the translation services, which would be paid for with $10,000 in a fund for professional services for the City Council. “Through the hard work of the members of the committee, we have validated the need within the community,” said DeMaria. Although the proposal for the program originally specified translations in Arabic, Cantonese, Haitian Creole, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish and Vietnamese, DeMaria recommended that translations be offered in any language. But councillors were concerned about the cost of the program. At Bay State Interpreters’ rate of 16 cents per word, the cost to translate the docket and minutes of one City Council meeting into one language could run around $475. Requests for translations in multiple languages could quickly deplete the $10,000 budget for the program. Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan proposed scaling back the pilot to translations in one or two languages that have been identified as the greatest need in terms of linguistic isolation. “That would give us a chance to get our arms around the budget a little more,” she said. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy suggested that if the pilot program is successful, the city should solicit multiple bids from translation services providers to see if there are companies that offer rates more favorable than 16 cents a word. Other councillors felt the city should move forward with the four-month pilot until either the time or the money runs out. “We have a budget and we have a limited amount of time. I think we should find ways to make this happen as opposed to ways to not make it happen,” said Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson. “We brag about the diversity in the city and we need to respond to that,” he added. Councillors voted to have a joint meeting of the Citizens Engagement Committee and the Finance Committee review translation services before the city moves forward with the pilot program. http://www.sabatino-ins.com SABATINO 564 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 617-387-7466 Hours of Operation are: Mondays - Fridays 9am to 5pm Saturdays by appointment only Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma

Page 6 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 14, 2020 Mayor visits ParentChild+ family at home By Tara Vocino M ayor Gary Christenson visited a family in the Malden ParentChild+ program on Wednesday morning at Malden Towers. According to ParentChild+ Coordinator Laura D’Angelo, ParentChild+ provides early literacy and school readiness support to low-income families and/or those who have risk factors by offering a curriculum of books and toys, which are alternated weekly over the period of two “years,” each year consisting of 23 weeks of visits. Funded by The Wellington Foundation, they cover the cost of $2,730 per family, including books, toys and program materials, which the family keeps after graduation in June. “It’s so fun to see him read to her,” said D’Angelo about Christenson, whose name Utsahi Luitel, 2, kept repeating leading up to Wednesday’s visit. “It’s great interaction – you can tell how much he cares.” Parbati Luitel, who has been receiving visits since April, said it’s an advantage to teach her daughter how to read early. Mayor Gary Christenson reads “Lola at the Library” by Anna McQuinn to Utsahi at her Florence Street home on Wednesday morning. “We feel lucky,” said Luitel, who moved from Nepal to the United States in 2014. “Early intervention is a great opportunity for us.” Her mother said toys are her daughter’s favorite part of the visit. Utsahi, who was dressed in a princess dress, plans to enroll in Head Start for preschool and Beebe Elementary School when she turns six years old. The program emphasizes relationships with child and parent, and D’Angelo said mother Parbati and father Biswa are a great example to Utsahi, with a brother, Utkist, on the way. The same goes for Malden Public Schools Early Learning Specialist Evelyn Baratam, she added. “Utsahi is doing great,” said D’Angelo, who added that research has shown a higher graduation rate for program participants. “They’ve established a wonderful relationship.” Christenson said it was fun and invited her family to visit his office. D’Angelo thanked Superintendent John Oteri, Massachusetts Program Director for ParentChild+ Carol Rubin and Malden Early Learning Center Principal Peter Dolan for their support with Malden’s 19 ParentChild+ participants.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, February 14, 2020 Page 7 Malden family benefits from Mystic Valley Elder Services Caregiver Support Program C aring for a person with Alzheimer's disease or dementia at home is a difficult task and can become overwhelming at times. Each day brings new challenges as the caregiver copes with changing levels of ability and new patterns of behavior. It is a demanding responsibility. Caregivers work hard year round to provide assistance to their loved ones. Devoting themselves physically and emotionally, caregivers take on enormous duties in bringing comfort to a friend or family member. Normal everyday tasks such as dressing, bathing, eating, and the basic activities of daily living often become difficult to manage for both the person in need of care and the caregiver. Unfortunately, there is no perfect instruction manual. “It is important for caregivers to reach out for help,” explains Mystic Valley Elder Services Caregivers Support Coordinator Kathy Learned. “Caregiving is very difficult to do on your own. They need to recognize that they need and deserve a break from their caregiving responsibilities. Many times, caregivers benefit from talking with others in similar situations.” Nikki, 50, of Malden, is caregiver to her husband Paul, 56, who has had early onset Alzheimer’s for more than two years. She attends Mystic Valley Elder Services’ (MVES) Family Caregivers Support Group. She and Paul have three young sons just fi nishing school and Nikki is a nurse and works nights. “Finances are tight,” said Nikki, with two kids in college and Paul having to leave his job due to the disease. “It can be difficult and very emotional,” she says. Paul is getting direct care including mental stimulation and physical care at an adult day health center three times a week, which MVES is helping him receive, and he is very happy there. Transportation is also provided through MVES to his day care services. During this time, Nikki fi nds time for herself to get a haircut and do errands. She is thankful for the support of her family, such as her sons who live at home, her mom, and Paul’s dad, who stays with him during the week. They have also hired a companion who takes walks with Paul at night when she is working. “Mystic Valley has helped Malden’s Early Voting schedule for Presidential Primary T he City of Malden is off ering Early Voting for the March 3 Presidential Primary.

Levine n old friend recently experienced the unthinkable. The loss of a child. Beyond words. Beyond comprehension. My heart goes out to Dan “Leo” Reardon and his wife, Alison, on the loss of their son Kevin. Kevin D. Reardon, a 2003 MHS graduate, passed away suddenly on January 8, 2020, at 34 years young. His childhood friend Joey Cucinotta had these heartfelt words to say about Kevin: “Kevin was one of my oldest friends. We were young boys when we met at Devir Park. It was a great place back then, much diff erent than the empty basketball courts you see today. There were so many of us. We spent our days active, either playing sports or on our bicycles pedaling to new adventures. Kevin and I never went to the same school, so these experiences were the foundation of our friendship. Us boys turned to teenagers and the bicycles turned to cars. Kevin was the fi rst person I picked up after I got my license. We were both so excited, I will never forget that. We would spend days cruising and listening to music. His favorite place to go was Newbury SKATING CENTER www.Roller-World.com | 781-231-1111 ATM on site Sunday Located Adjacent to Rite Aid Pharmacy in Saugus Plaza, South Bound Route 1 MBTA Bus Route 429 FREE WI-FI - 2 WIDE SCREEN TV’S FULLY AIR CONDITIONED WINTER SKATING SCHEDULE ATTENTION! 12-8 p.m. $7.50 Monday Private Parties Tuesday School & PTO GROUPS 7:30-10:30 p.m. Adult Night 18+ only $8.50 Wednesday Private Parties Thursday Private Parties 3-11 p.m. $7.50 Friday Saturday Admission after 6 p.m. $8.50 12-11 p.m. $7.50 Admission after 6 p.m. $8.50 Skates included in price/Blades $3 Bowling Alleys, 2 snack bars, video games.

(Facebook post by Dana Smith) Comics on Tuesdays because that’s when the new CDs came out. These are the times in the course of our friendship I cherish. We remained very close as we grew into adults. Our friendship evolved. Gone were the consecutive days and weeks that we would see one another. But our bond never wavered. My heart breaks when I think of what has happened. I feel for my friend. I feel for his family. I feel for myself and the many of us from Devir Park, who are now one less. When I think about Kevin, a tear begins to form. But then a smile. I think of all the beautiful days we spent together. It’s not easy but refl ecting on all these memories make it less diffi cult.” “What you are about to see is a matter of human record. Explain it: we cannot. Disprove it: we cannot. We simply invite you to explore with us the amazing world of the Unknown ... to take that One Step ... Beyond.” Speaking of Preacher Jack... “Friend of Malden” and Gloucester’s best Willie “Loco” Alexander turned 77 years young this January 13 and looks better than most people half his age. President Lyndon Johnson sat in the White House when Willie’s fi rst band, The Lost, were fi rst getting started. In 1968 his next band, The Bagatelle, helped create what became known as the “Bosstown Sound.” They played legendary clubs, such as the Psychedelic Supermarket and The Crosstown Bus, in front of crowds high on weed, LSD and Schlitz. In 1971 he was recruited to play with the Lou Reed(less) Velvet Underground, which resulted in an extended tour of Europe and an early taste of the rock n roll touring lifestyle. I caught up with Willie musically in 1980 when he was with the Boom Boom Band playing clubs like The Rat, The Channel, Jumpin Jack Flash and The Paradise. I got hooked the fi rst time I heard “Mass Ave./Kerouac”! Fast forward to 2013, Willie’s wonderful and lovely wife, Anne, is throwing a surprise 70th birthday celebration for her hubby. She has rented the Davis Square Theatre in Davis Square, Somerville, to host this epic event and has invited 200 of Willie’s nearest and dearest friends (although she later admitted the 200-person capacity wasn’t nearly big enough). On the guest list is Malden’s own Preacher Jack, who has been asked to open the evening with a short set. Willie and Jack had been playing together occasionally for about three years, mostly on the North Shore. They became fast friends through a mutual acquaintance, Gloucester native and fellow musician David “Doc” Vincent. When playing on the same bill they both would do solo sets and end the evening sitting at the same piano pounding away at the Yamaha for about 10 to 15 minutes – playing whatever boogie-woogie sounds that came into their creative/fertile minds. On this night all the stars came out to show their love for Willie. It was the most talented room of people I have ever seen. The mood was electric from the minute Willie stepped into the MALDEN: TODAY | SEE PAGE 10 Prices subject to change Winter Diesel Available FLEET

In the last regular season competitive event, the Malden High varsity coed gymnastics team broke through with a dual meet victory over host Salem High. A team effort helped head coach Katie Bowdridge’s Golden Tornadoes squad to a 102-70.8 win over the Witches at Baker’s School of Gymnastics in Salem. “We have a young team this year that has been working hard and improving every week,” Coach Bowdridge said. “It was great to see them earn a well-deserved win against Salem.” In their previous meet, the Golden Tornadoes gymnastics team was bested by Bishop Fenwick, 125.5-103.1. Highlights of the season were two close battles with next-door rival Medford, where the Mustangs prevailed by just a few points, in meets decided by just one or two events at the competition. “Make it or break it” week for MHS girls’ basketball It’s come down to the final week of play for the Malden High girls’ basketball team and any postseason aspirations.

Seems Preacher Jack frequented this location often many years ago as a wild teenager. He found solace there and considered it a holy shrine of sorts. Ya gotta know Jack, I guess, to understand this completely. Anyway – about 10 years ago he asked me to take him there one last time. He wanted to reconnect with this hallowed ground “one more time before I die.” The ride was a short one but the walk into the Middlesex Fells to our destination was a slow, tortured one due to Jack’s bad feet. We completed our mission. Not in record time. Jack smoked a bunch of cigarettes and recited some “Luke the Drifter” for us, which made it all worthwhile. Jack is still with us in 2020, a resident of Tewksbury State Hospital – the very last stop on his “Everlasting Celebration of the Spirit Never Ending Tour.” Here is Dana’s post: “Not quite Malden, but a stone’s throw away in the Middlesex Fells Reservation. Trolley cars ran through the Reservation from 1910 to 1946 on their route between Medford and Stoneham Squares. Four reinforced concrete bridges were built for the route, three of which still remain including this northernmost trestle type bridge which skirts Dark Hollows Pond. The 110-year-old trestle is 275 feet in length spanning a 40-foot ravine. In the circa 1940 photograph you see a trolley traveling over the bridge, the frozen pond in the foreground. Though the trolleys are no more, the pond and trestle are there today, the latter fairly visible when the leaves are off the trees.” BASKETBALL | FROM PAGE 12 us Philippe (20) Jose Davila (17) led the way with a lil help from the deep ball [hitting 9] as they remain in a tie on top of the land.

February 7 & 14, 2020 By: Gregory Lucey Clerk OPEN HOUSE - SATURDAY ministration, the collaboration among Revere, Saugus, Lynn and Everett, as well as Bike to the Sea for making this come to fruition. The enhancements in Revere and the completion of the Saugus-Lynn parts of the trail will be a welcome project to our communities.” “This is great news for Lynn. The Northern Strand Community Path is a great example of what can be achieved when all stakeholders work together to turn vision into reality,” said State Representative Peter Capano (D-Lynn) “Our parkways and open space are natural gems of the Commonwealth. Weaving together these fi ve Gateway Cities with outdoor, recreational space will benefit this entire region,” said State Senator Joe Boncore (D-Winthrop). “Expanding the Northern Strand Community Trail also provides opportunities to walk and bike rather than sitting in traffi c; another step to alleviating congestion in this area.” “This multi-community project is a huge environmental and recreational win that will benefi t the entire North Shore,” said State Senator Brendan Crighton (D-Lynn). “While much focus has been put on the significant development taking place in the area, it is important to highlight the access to open space and the transformation of this trail.” “The extension of the Northern Strand Community Trail to the Lynn shoreline is a great example of what strong collaboration amongst state, local, and community leaders can accomplish,” said State Representative Dan Cahill (D-Lynn). “The completion of the Northern Strand will bring many benefi ts to residents North of Boston including access to open space, transit, and recreation." “We’re thrilled to see 27 years of our devoted work and cooperative eff orts with countless local governments and organizations fi nally reaching fruition,” said Bike to the Sea Executive Director Yurij Lojko. “Bike to the Sea, Inc. began dreaming about a safe biking route to the beach, but we’re ending up with something even more important – a vibrant mixed-use community path with recreation and transportation benefi ts to all people north of Boston. We look forward to the completion of this very exciting step in expanding Boston’s off -road community path network.” “We at the Solomon Foundation were pleased to be a small but catalytic part of this eff ort to connect together fi ve cities and towns and in the process to unlock access to our natural legacy of rivers, marshes and beaches,” said Solomon Foundation Executive Director Herb Nolan. “With help from the Barr Foundation we were able to partner with Bike to the Sea, Inc. and with the City of Lynn in advocacy, planning, and early design. Kudos to the many leaders involved from the grass roots to the governor’s offi ce who came together to make this quarter century vision a reality.” The investment of more than $15 million by EEA to design, permit and construct the Northern Strand recognizes the importance of this trail corridor to the fi ve communities while building on a key Baker-Polito Administration initiative. In 2018, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karen Polito established an Interagency Trails Team, which is led by the Governor’s offi ce and is composed of staff from EEA, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). The purpose of the team is to help develop a unifi ed vision for a trails network and translate that into strategic investments, policy innovations to facilitate development of trails, and shared partnerships with municipal partners. The Northern Strand Community Trail project is a direct result of the group’s “one team, one plan, one vision” approach to advance multiuse trails across the Commonwealth.
