EAST BOSTON’S PIERS PARK III SETS AN EXAMPLE FOR PIER 5 IN CHARLESTOWN

In writing about the proposal for Piers Park III in East Boston, Jocelyn Forbush (”Developing a climate resilient Boston Waterfront,” Opinion, May 31) provides the argument for rejecting the proposals currently before the Boston Planning and Development Agency for private commercial development of Pier 5 in the Charlestown Navy Yard.

Rather than given to private development, Pier 5, a historic structure situated at the head of Boston Harbor, should be preserved as a fully accessible, environmentally resilient, recreational, and educational open public space — the objective Forbush outlines for Piers Park III. She writes of Piers Park III as a good beginning and asks organizations, businesses, and residents to act and “voice support for a greener waterfront.”

All those who support her objectives should unite to oppose private development of Pier 5 in the Navy Yard and support organizations and resources working to fulfill mutual goals.
