The next public meeting in support of the MAPC/MassDOT Green Line Extension Community Visioning Process will be on June 23, 2011 from 6:30pm – 9:00pm at 51 Winthrop Street in Medford.

During this fourth meeting, participants will be able to create a series of potential future land use scenarios — with an evaluation of the positive benefits and negative impacts of each scenario — for the Mystic Valley Parkway area. This work will help to inform MAPC's future recommendations about the Mystic Valley Parkway area to MassDOT and the cities of Medford and Somerville. Please RSVP to the meeting through the MAPC website. It is important to know the number of participants expected to attend the meeting so that the right number of resources can be made available.

The meeting location is accessible by MBTA bus service. See www.mbta.com for more information.

In addition, the Green Line Extension Station Design Workshops are ongoing. Thank you again to everyone who has participated so far.  The Workshops are an excellent way for the Green Line Extension team to hear directly from the public.  Please continue to participate in the upcoming Workshops:
