Everett

City’s harbor plan approved

State environmental officials recently approved the city’s municipal harbor plan. The document outlines goals for creating and improving public access to and along the water as new development occurs, and sets requirements for those projects. The planning area is bounded by the Malden and Mystic rivers to the west, Route 16 to the north, the MBTA rail tracks to the east, and the city boundary along Route 99 to the south. Creation of a harbor plan allows cities and towns to encourage specific types of development that might not otherwise comply with state regulations for building within tidal areas, according to James Errickson, the city’s director of planning and development. He said the Everett plan would accommodate the resort casino proposed by Wynn Resorts on the former Monsanto site. In a letter to the city announcing the 20-year approval of the plan, Bruce Carlisle, director of the state Office of Coastal Zone Management, said the plan will provide “a great opportunity to activate Everett’s waterfront with new public access and recreational opportunities.”
