February 11, 2014 Dear Charlestown Community: We would like to share with you some of the City’s assessments and recommendations in the review of the proposed development by Wynn, MA LLC. Wynn has submitted a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). This is an important step in the process of reviewing the proposed development and ensuring that the development does not harmfully impact the City of Boston, specifically the Charlestown community. The City of Boston has assembled a specialized team of City officials, independent consultants and subject matter experts to review the Wynn filing and proposal. Together with community input, the City’s team has a series of requests, recommendations and comments related to the Wynn proposal. The City is actively encouraging both Wynn and the state to consider and accept the City’s comprehensive review of the proposed development. The City recommends that the state and Wynn review and accept the following comments: • • • • • • • All bullet points Environment Transportation Parks BRA Sullivan Square Air Quality

For more information, please see the attached comment letters on the proposed Wynn development from the City of Boston. The City’s review of the Wynn MA, LLC DEIR is one of many reviews of the overall development, all of which are improved by community engagement and feedback. We look forward to working with the community throughout this process. Sincerely,
