East Eagle Street Electric Substation

← Map Main Page

East Boston residents are advocating for new recreational space on the Chelsea Creek, instead of a proposed high-voltage electric substation. The substation would be dangerously close to the water and prone to flooding, next to the American Legion Playground—one of the most popular parks and sports fields in the neighborhood—and near jet fuel storage. It would pose major threats to public safety, health, and local economic interests. A new recreational space would align with the vision for a publicly accessible and resilient coastal zone.
