Petition to Support An Act
Protecting Sunlight in Certain Public Parks
We support protecting sunlight in Copley Square and on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Therefore, we support H 01169, An Act Protecting Sunlight in Certain Public Parks, a bill proposed by Reps. Martha Walz and Byron Rushing.
We urge the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to comply with the terms of this legislation by limiting new shadows on The Esplanade, The Commonwealth Avenue Mall, Copley Square Park, The Back Bay Fens, Magazine Beach Park, and Christopher Columbus Park to 1 hour after sunrise and 1 hour before sunset.
