This picture is out of date by a few years, but it gives a good overview of the challenges facing UMass Dorchester--and by extension, the JFK library and Ted Kennedy Center. As the sole occupants of a peninsula made out garbage, any traffic from parts elsewhere has to have a compelling reason to come and stay. One consideration is to find another home for a minor state office building located on the site. Another, is to improve traffic access from JFK station and the highway. And, keep up the expansion of the college and replacement of the older buildings. All of this takes money, which seems to be in short supply. Hence, the long game, which implies some private development.
