City Councilor Michelle Wu called for sweeping change to Boston’s development review process Monday by proposing that the Boston Planning and Development Agency be abolished — overdue action needed to address the city’s pressing problems, she said. Wu, detailing the proposal in a 54-page report, said the agency has only served the well-connected in an outdated system designed 60 years ago that lacks accountability and transparency. Meanwhile, Boston’s modern day problems have continued on, unchecked, she says. “Instead of delivering the resources to address our most urgent challenges, Boston’s development process is making our problems worse,” Wu wrote in the report, titled, “Fixing Boston’s Broken Development Process: Why and How to Abolish the BPDA.” “We’re more and more anxious about rising home prices and rents, frustrated daily by increasingly awful commutes, and scared about the flooding and extreme heat … [Read more...] about Michelle Wu wants to abolish the BPDA.

Looking for luxury Majorca Holidays? Belmond La Residencia in Deia is one of Mallorca’s leading hotels On this trip, I discovered one of the most special hotels I have had the pleasure of staying at: the stunning Belmond La Residencia. My love for Mallorca is very well documented in this blog. It is an island I have visited over 20 times (I kid you not) and I try to make a special effort to return every year. Why? Because I still feel I haven’t scratched its surface – there is always something more to see or do (or not do at all) in the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands. The hotel is very well known, as it was previously owned by Richard Branson. It is located in Deia, in the north-west coast of Mallorca (around 45 mins from Palma de Mallorca, the island’s capital).
