Excerpt from East Boston Waterfront Development Proposal Council was formed in l970 as one of the first local advisory councils launched by Mayor Kevin H. White. The primary function of the lac's was to help the city administration plan projects which the community views as most important and to function as local planning bodies. The purpose and concept of this council has not changed from what was outlined at that time (note Appendix A) and is the only remaining council in the city that has continued to effectively operate since its establishment. During its 8 year history, it has accomplished a great deal within the East Boston community. Like few other neighborhoods, East Boston has had to struggle and continues to struggle for its mere survival. Through the efforts and determination of local East Boston residents working with this Council, the neighborhood now-enjoys a less severely impacted existence than would have otherwise existed. Housing opportunities have been expanded, parks have been constructed, human services have increased and rational planning has prevailed. Perhaps the reason for the continued success and respect of this council is that it does not claim to represent the neighborhood, but instead serves as the reflector and perpetuator of community attitudes and desires as expressed by area residents. It does not plan for the community but rather works for and with the community to make their collective desires a reality.
