EBoard Report 10 January 2000
Due to the response of the hotel at the Tie Down Meeting to negotiations regarding compensation for the loss of the Terrace room, and the impending nature of the convention, the President decided to go forward on a proposal for certain concessions, including a parking discount and a waiver of the majority of incidental expenses that the convention would normally have paid for. -Noel

Directions to the ARISIA Corporate Offices and Storage Facility

Located in Somerville, MA, Arisia's storage facility is on Windsor Place, a short block off Webster Ave.

From Union Square, take the first left after crossing the railroad bridge; from Cambridge, take the last right before crossing the railroad bridge. [See Map Below]

In any case, you will be turning onto Columbia St; the landmark is the Royal White Laundry at the corner. After turning onto Columbia, bear gently left onto Windsor Place at the stop sign. On the right (opposite DHL Worldwide Express) is a brick warehouse-type building. Our entrance is the rightmost door, which has a big sign for the Diak Corporation. You might be able to find parking in front of the building, but do not block any of the doors or loading docks. Do not park at DHL during their business hours! You can probably park safely at RCN.

Enter the first door in the building. Go upstairs to the second floor. Wander down the hallway until you see Arisians. Enter here.

To get to Arisia Storage by Public Transit:

Take the #85 from Kendall Square T on the Red Line. Get off at Columbia Street (the street on the left is labeled Tremont Street & there is a large commercial laundry business on your right -- you may have to walk back about 50 feet from the bus stop) . *Walk up Columbia Street through the next intersection and follow the street around to the left. You will come to a large brick building on the right (just across from DHL).

You could also take any bus to Union Square, Somerville, (or at least any bus that normally runs there:), and then walk over the railroad bridge on Prospect to Webster Ave. Make a left onto Webster and a left onto Columbia (it's the first street on the left, btw). Follow from * above.

You could also take the #69 from Harvard Square or from Lechmere T to Webster/Columbia (the (it changes names at Cambridge Street, which is the street that the #69 runs down:). Walk up Webster between the Shell station and the cemetery/headstone sales place to Columbia Court (it will be on your right). Follow from * above.

You could take the T to Central and walk up Prospect until you get to Webster Ave. (noticeable by the USave car/truck rental place on your right at that intersection). Take a right onto Webster and then make a left onto Columbia Court (the first left, I think). Follow from * above.

The map and directions don't tell you that the storage facility is a couple of blocks from Inman Square.

You can take the 69 bus, which runs along Cambridge St., from Harvard Square or Lechmere to Columbia St. You can also take the 83 and 91 buses, which go up Prospect St., from Central Square to Cambridge St.
