Green Line Extension Experts Visit, May 24, 2010 National experts in real estate acquisition and relocation recently visited with the Green Line Extension project team in support of the MassDOT/MBTA application for federal New Starts funding.  As part of the development of the  Green Line Extension, the MBTA will purchase certain pieces of private property in Somerville and Medford to create space for the new Green Line tracks.  In cases of commercial acquisition, the MBTA will work with property owners to relocate their businesses.  The Federal Transit Administration is providing MassDOT and the MBTA with technical assistance on a wide range of project-related issues, including property issues.  MassDOT and MBTA staff members provided a tour of the project corridor to representatives of Spitzer & Associates, an Austin-based firm specializing in real estate acquisition and relocation.  The visit was an important step in the development of the New Starts applications for the Green Line Extension project.
