Dear Mr. Meagher,

Thank you for your email sent on December 4th, 2019. I appreciate that a planned community
such as Sunnyside Yards with ambitious engineering goals requires a lengthy, complex, and
multi-stakeholder driven planning process. Such a process is meaningful insofar as the input
solicited is valued and incorporated in every iteration of a proposed plan. Despite the many
outreach meetings that you have cited, I have yet to see sufficient inclusion of the feedback
from those meetings in the current plan. This feedback, both from community members and
from my office, includes but is not limited to community land trusts, truly affordable housing, and
public and green infrastructure of the scale necessary to meet our 21st century housing and
environmental justice challenges. Without the inclusion of these requirements in the Master
Plan, I cannot continue to contribute my resources to this project.

In light of the aforementioned, I submit to you my resignation from the Sunnyside Yards Master
Planning Steering Committee. Please confirm receipt of this notice.
