Haymarket Pushcart Assocation (Continued from Page l) opinions and believe the work they put into this pro- cess will result in a better outcome for all." In addition to the eco- nomic and tourism benefits the hotel will lend to the area, the Normandy proposal will result in more than $2 million in improvements to Blackstone Street in support of the Haymarket Pushcart Association (HPA) operation, including regrading the street to simplify vendor set- up, installation of water and power for use by vendors, introduction of a system of retractable vendor stall cov- ers, creation of a fire lane through the market -- all while minimizing changes to existing HPA layouts and operating patterns. In addi- tion, the proposal will provide interior space for trash com- paction, pushcart storage, HPA office space and vendor rest rooms. "These benefits will help ensure the continued viabil- ity of this treasured Boston institution for years to come," said Davey. "None of this would have been pos- sible without the active engagement of the BRA, the Pushcart Association, and the Advisory Committee. We look forward to continuing to work with them to shape this development through the permitting process and to realize the vision of a multi- faceted Market District fo- cused on offering quality food to Boston area residents in a lively, active setting." In addition to the benefits to the Pushcart Association and the Market District, the proposed 99-year lease to be negotiated with Normandy will result in rent to MassDOT with a present value of between $7.3 and $8.5 million, to be dedicated to transportation uses. Normandy's designation is the culmination of an exten- sive proposal and selection process. The criteria used in making the decision included: the proposed land use and project design; com- munity benefits; community and City input; and the developer's financial pro- posal, capacity, and experi- ence. Normandy's proposed de- velopment is now subject to negotiation and execution of a development agreement and lease with MassDOT, as well as standard City and state permitting.

Box 130135, Boston, MA 02113 Madonna Della Cava (Continued from Page 1) Crowds gathered for the 93rd Madonna Della Cava Feast which was held over the weekend on Hanover and Battery Streets in Boston's North End. There was dancing in the streets to live music, tantalizing food to infuse the taste buds, games and raffles and so much more. On Sunday a Grand Procession took to the streets with society members carrying The image of Maria SS Della Cava, Principal Patron of Pietraperzia, Sicily, for several hours accompanied by The North East Italian Band, St. Alfio's Band, Sons of Italy Drum Corps and the Defenders playing traditional music. (Photos by Rosario Scabin, Ross Photography) God took her home, it was His will, but in our hearts we love her still. He r memory is as dear today, as in the hour she passed away. We often sit and think of her when we are all alone. For memory is the only friend that grief can call it's own. The years may wipe out many things but this they'll wipe our never. The memory of those happy days which we have spent together. We are at peace for we now know, it is Heaven she has entered. In her life, she was loved and honored, in her death she is remembered.
