February 26, 2021 Letter To Northeastern
Today we are sending a letter to Northeastern University.

By way of background at a hearing on January 26, 2021, Essex County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Karp suggested that the parties may wish to consider mediation. While such efforts initiated in the past by the Board of Selectmen proved fruitless (See Selectmen’s Statement dated September 29, 2020) , nonetheless the Board of Selectmen was willing to give mediation another chance and on January 29th, sent a letter to NU indicating the Town’s willingness to mediate, a copy of that letter can be found here

 In response, the Town received a letter from Northeastern’s General Counsel telling the Board that it was not prepared to mediate until certain unacceptable ground rules dictated by Northeastern were accepted by the Town, a copy of that letter can be found here The following letter is our further response that we today are sending to Northeastern University.
