Many thanks to Quincy City Councilor Brian Palmucci and the Quincy City Council for passing a resolution in support of H.818 and H.819, two bills intended to preserve the portion of the Blue Hills called Fowl Meadow.

The legislation, introduced by Representative Walter Timilty, is intended to protect Fowl Meadow’s sensitive wetland habitat.  Fowl Meadow and the surrounding area are already designated by the state as an ‘Area of Critical Environmental Concern.’  Significant building activity, like a proposed 276-unit development, would threaten the rare and endangered species, disrupt drainage and water purification to the wetland and generally degrade the habitat.

We appreciate Councilor Palmucci for introducing the resolution to help protect the Blue Hills.
