Posted by Kate Fichter, Green Line Extension Project Manager
It is my pleasure to announce that MassDOT and the MBTA will shortly be hosting two public "meet and greet" sessions to introduce the members of the new Green Line Extension project team to the Green Line Extension community. These sessions will be an opportunity to hear from the new team members about their past experience and their plans for the Green Line Extension project, and to share with them your ideas, questions, and aspirations for the project.
We hope that you will be able to join us for one or both of the sessions:
Tuesday, May 3, at 6PM, Argenziano School, 290 Washington Street, Somerville
Thursday, May 12, at 6PM, Medford City Hall, 85 George P. Hassett Dr., Medford
More information about the project can be found on the Green Line Extension website: www.mass.gov/greenlineextension.
For language or access accommodations, please contact Beverley Johnson at 617-296-7003 or email@example.com at least one week before the event. We want to hear your ideas – please join us.
Lastly, our thanks to everyone who attended last night's MAPC/MassDOT "Community Questions" meeting as part of the Mystic Valley Parkway visioning process. The meeting went very well, and we appreciate your participation and encourage you to check the project website for meeting materials and future updates.
As always, if you have any questions on the project, you can email Kate Fichter, Project Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
