Monday, March 19, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm – Muddy River Restoration Project Maintenance and Oversight Committee Annual Meeting

The Muddy River Maintenance and Management Oversight Committee (the “MMOC”) consists of Secretary-appointed citizen members of the original Emerald Necklace Citizens Advisory Committee (the “ENCAC”) appointed to represent the public to protect the significant investment of over $90 million and ensure that improvements are properly maintained for many years. Other members are various organizations representing the myriad of cultural, educational and medical institutions in the area, the City of Boston and the Town of Brookline (the “Proponents”), and DCR. Other members of the MMOC come from Boards and Commissions and organizations with related interests. In effect, MMOC is a separate entity serving as ombudsman for the public, with frequent meetings and site visits to oversee and guide the performance of the Proponents.  The MMOC will hold its Annual Meeting on Monday, March 19 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, which is an awfully good reason to go.  RSVP to  Photo courtesy National Park Service, Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site.
