Cranberry Point requires Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) review: read more here
MEPA is not a permit, but a study of alternatives that requires a developer to minimize and mitigate environmental damage from their project
There are steps in the process:
An “Environmental Notification Form” (ENF)
Then a “Draft Environmental Impact Report” the public gets to comment on, and a “Supplemental Environmental Impact Report” (SEIR). The SEIR for Cranberry Point is here.
Finally, a “Final Environmental Impact Report” (FEIR) that is usually just a rubber stamp.
