In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Hi Alex --
Thanks for the note.
Populous is an architecture firm based in Kansas City, but with an office in Boston. My specific interest is a proposed soccer stadium on the South Boston/South End border --otherwise known as the Widett Circle area. To that end, I would think they may have been in touch with the BRA or with the mayor's office, but I am not sure, and would appreciate a broad look.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on March 26, 2015. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thank you for your help.
