I learned about this upcoming meeting from Denise Provost’s newsletter today (quoting below):
A) Real progress, hearing, on Green Line extension!
Even before I was sworn in as State Representative, I was attending meetings with the rest of our state delegation to press for real progress on the Green Line Extension through Somerville. So far, that progress has been slow often frustratingly slow and practically invisible. That picture is about to change.
The Executive Office of Transportation (EOT) is filing an Expanded Environmental Notification Form (EENF) for the Green Line Extension project with the Massachusetts Environmental Protection Act (MEPA) unit of the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EOEA). Notice of the EENF will be published in the Environmental Monitor on Tuesday, October 10, 2006. This filing initiates the mandatory environmental planning process for the project, to which EOT has committed $2.2 million in funding.
There will be a public hearing on the environmental review and planning process on Monday, October 16, from 6-8pm, in the Somerville High Auditorium.
EOT has also committed to facilitating the land use planning for the corridor in which the Green Line Extension will be built, but has yet to provide a timeframe for that process.
Please show up to hear it. Wear green.
