MassDOT today announced it will hold a series of Green Line Extension Land Use Workshops in Medford, Cambridge and Somerville in May and June. The meetings are intended to gather public ideas and suggestions for the areas around future MBTA Green Line Extension stations. After an overview presentation on the Green Line Extension project, participants will have a chance to share knowledge about their neighborhoods and to express their priorities and concerns about future land uses around the stations. These workshops will focus on areas around the planned stations, while fall workshops will focus on the stations themselves.
Scheduled events include:
Medford- Wednesday, May 19, 6:00-8:00 pm, Columbus Elementary School Cafeteria, 37 Hicks Avenue
Cambridge- Wednesday, May 26, 6:30-8:30 pm, Kennedy Longfellow School Cafeteria, 158 Spring Street
Somerville- Saturday, June 12, 10:00am-3:00 pm, Argenziano School, 290 Washington Street
These are the first of multiple public events that MassDOT is planning to hold within the Green Line Extension project corridor over the next months. All events will be widely advertised. Updated information will be posted on the project website.
The Green Line Extension project will extend existing MBTA Green Line service from Lechmere Station through the northwest Boston corridor communities of Cambridge, Somerville, and Medford, with an extension of the main line to College Avenue in Medford and a spur line to Union Square in Somerville.
