MassDOT as part of its You Move Massachusetts Civic Engagement Initiative today announced it will hold a series of community forums on transportation across the Commonwealth. The January forum is scheduled for:
Tuesday, January 26, 2010, 5:30-6:45PM
Framingham Town Hall, Blumer Room, 150 Concord St., Framingham
The location is fully accessible to persons with disabilities.
The Framingham forum will include an overview of MassDOT and updates on Framingham Commuter Rail Service and the CSX–MassDOT Rail Agreement. The majority of the time will be made available for questions, answers, and comments.
The new, unified MassDOT is the result of the historic transportation reform bill signed into law by Governor Patrick in 2009. Its four divisions include Highway, Rail & Transit, Aeronautics, and the Registry of Motor Vehicles. These community forums will work to increase public awareness of the day to day operations and long range planning of MassDOT, and engage public input into MassDOT’s decision making processes.
