Kristina Egan, South Coast Rail Project Manager

Governor Patrick's commitment to the South Coast Rail project and the hard work of so many people in planning for this effort are now being recognized.  I am pleased to tell our transportation blog readers that the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Planning Association has announced that the 2009 President’s Award for Outstanding Planning goes to South Coast Rail’s Economic Development and Land Use Corridor Plan.

APA-MA’s awards recognize innovation, quality, transferability and comprehensiveness and this year, stressed implementation as an important factor. This ground breaking plan was developed with unprecedented public input and through the contributions of many individuals and organizations including Goody Clancy, as the lead consultant, and the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District.

We are making progress each day toward keeping the promise of making South Coast Rail a reality.  I look forward to continuing the dialogue on this exciting project in the months ahead and appreciate your feedback.  And please check out the latest information about South Coast Rail and view the Corridor Plan released by the Governor in August on our website.
