Although not on the agenda for Tuesday’s Lowell City Council meeting, the possibility that migrants in need of emergency shelter will be housed in the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center (ICC) was discussed at length under a point of personal privilege by Councilor Corey Robinson. For the most part, Councilors were opposed to the concept.
I'm working on it.
I would love if you could do a dedicated post addressing the history of Lowell on its reaction to newcomers to the city. Especially like you said how a fair amount of "revisionism" was taken place at the council meeting.
