When I ask Miller how, exactly, the public would be involved in the future, he mentions the forming of “community review teams” that would involve South Boston residents and businesses in planning for the new City Hall. So, I ask, the public will get to weigh in on how to build in South Boston — but not whether to build there? “Well,” Miller replies, “I think that’s already being discussed by the public.”
Of course, whether the public knows this is something of an open question. So — with his legacy at stake — is whether Mayor Menino cares what anyone else has to say.
