Mugar project opponents raise $10k of $50k goal in legal fight

Mugar site, Google Earth

UPDATED Sept. 11: The Coalition to Save the Mugar Wetlands has set an initial target of $50,000 to support the efforts of the residents of East Arlington who filed suit last year to prevent the construction of Thorndike Place, a 124-unit, four-floor rental building near documented wetlands.

Since June 30, the group has raised $10,000.

Arlington Town Meeting and the Select Board do not support this development. Neighborhood residents say they have spent about $18,000 in legal fees to date.
