While the City of Worcester declared victory when its dispute with the EPA over discharge limits at the Upper Blackstone Water Pollution Abatement District, not everyone is cheering.
[Rhode Island Attorney General Peter F. ] Kilmartin also writes that the substance of MassDEP’s position is unfair “in light of the great sacrifices Rhode Island rate-payers are making to stop pollution of the upper Bay. The treatment plants located in the Ocean State have already cleaned-up or are in the process of doing so. While the Massachusetts situation threatens to fester indefinitely, the Rhode Island permitees are making rapid progress towards meeting those standards.”
Nothing beats the fun fact:
Fun Fact: The Worcester State Insane Asylum Hospital was the first hospital in the United States established to treat mental illnesses. Prominent psychologist Sigmund Freud visited the hospital in his only trip to the country.
The Chamber of Commerce recently posted their pictures from last week’s CitySquare walkthrough.
Also, some thoughts on the project from the Adventures of a Worcesterite Tumbr:
recently there was an article in the Telegram and Gazette about the construction and how new streets will be made, and they described how the new street “Mercantile Street” which will run parallel to Worcester Center Boulevard is being constructed inside what isDead summer.

All I can say is that I hope that the Unum Building and the Cancer Center that St. Vincent Hospital is building will be joined by a tall-ish tower. I would love to see something over 300’ in Worcester because currently the tallest building in the city is 288’ and 24 floors, I would love to see something near 30 floors, maybe a mixed use building with retail on the ground floor, offices in the middle, and then possibly a hotel or condos/apartments on the upper floors. Thats just me but I would love to see a sleek tower there that would re-define the downtown center of the city and bring more jobs to the city.
Via the city website, we’ve found that MSN Real Estate has listed Worcester among the top five housing markets in the country:
High-tech job growth has returned to this market an hour west of Boston. Many urban dwellers are looking in this area for bigger, less expensive houses than they’d find in the big city. While the average home price of $237,020 has declined 3% over the last year, prices are beginning to bottom, with 2% growth expected in 2013.

The Economic Development Standing Committee will conduct a View of the City Square Development on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 3:00 pm.
The Committee and attendees will meet at the entrance to the Worcester District Registry of Deeds at 90 Front Street for a walk-through of the City Square Development.
What follows is an assemblage of random bits from the web about Worcester…
let’s be honest – there are also some obstacles to biking in Worcester. For one thing, the hills around here are daunting. For me, the only way to consistently go by bike is to just get out there and tackle them. The other major barrier I see is that there are zero bike lanes, except for the ½ mile one next to Lake Park.
From Beachcombing for Beauty:
In one week, I will be headed back to the happiest place on earth. No, not Disney World. No, this place is less magical, though the way the Chapel looks on a snowy night seems like it’s right out of a picture book. The magic is instead in how this place has helped me to grow and helped me to become the person I am today. In reality, this is one place that at times hasn’t really been all that happy for me, but at the end of the day, when its name crosses my lips, an instant smile spreads across my face, and if you don’t cut me off right away, I will begin rambling about this place before you know what hit you.
A new book — Fraternity, by Diane Brady — tells the story of 20 black men (Edward P. Jones and Clarence Thomas among them) who came to Holy Cross in 1968 to attend school. The book received a mixed review from the Boston Globe and likely had its inspiration in the author’s research for BusinessWeek.
In case you missed it in the T&G’s business section, there was an article about the old courthouse’s limbo status.
The long read: Worcester at the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, from the Massachusetts Society of the Sons of the Revolution.
