To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
All records of correspondence between the Somerville Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development and Tufts University from January 2010 to the present.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.
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.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
A letter stating the requester must agree to or prepay assessed or estimated fees in order for the agency to continue processing the request.
Thanks for your response Ms. McGettigan,
For now I would prefer to narrow my request to correspondence between OSPCD and Tufts concerning the enforcement of Somerville Zoning Ordinance's limit of no more than four unrelated occupants to a dwelling, especially as it pertains to the City's approved 'Ordinance Regulating University Accountability'.
A cover letter granting the request and outlining any exempted materials, if any.
A copy of documents responsive to the request.
