No sooner than posting the item below, we picked up a print copy of the Boston Courant with the lead headline: “Fisher Reconsiders Beacon Dorm Plan.”
Apparently, the storm of neighborhood controversy has forced the school to reconsider putting new dorms at 115 and 139-141 Beacon Street, each holding 43 beds for students (115 is the highlighted one above, while 139-141 is to the far left on the same side of Beacon; click on map to see slightly larger version). Fisher didn’t make clear what exactly it will do to accommodate residents’ concerns, but Fisher spokesman Peter Gori said the school is willing to be flexible, the Courant reported.
We’d gladly link to the Boston Courant article, but it doesn’t post its stories online. Copies are available at most grocery stores and retail shops in the Back Bay and on Beacon Hill. Check out the issue. It’s worth the read.
Fyi: Here’s the original Fisher Master Plan presented last month by the college at a city hearing.
