City Councilor John Connolly is floating the idea of building an environmental sciences K-12 academy at the old site of the Boston State Hospital in Mattapan, according to the Boston Phoenix. Isn’t that the location of the Boston Nature Center? Would this academy co-exist with the Nature Center, which is run by the Mass Audubon Society? I’d certainly like to hear more.
Right now, the rough price tag is $100 million, but as Chuck Turner pointed out in the article, there’s $500 million in school repairs waiting to be done.
I would love to see the city embark on a project like this. Good luck with that, sir.
