I would like to extend a huge “thank you” to everyone who attended the South Station Expansion Open Houses this past week – we had almost 100 people attend! It was great to have the opportunity to meet with a vibrant group of individuals who share an interest in this important project.
I had the pleasure of talking with a variety of people with different interests in South Station – some who work at or close by the station, others who use the station during their daily commute to and from work, neighborhood members who live or own a business in the area, train enthusiasts and many more. All of you provided me with important information and suggestions; in turn, I hope our team answered your questions and eased any concerns about the expansion. I believe these open houses definitely conjured up a lot of excitement about the project for the neighborhood and Boston, as a whole. Please continue to stay in touch as we move forward and feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or feedback you may have.
If you missed the open house, you can visit the project website to see the overview, print the fact sheet, or read up on the latest project news. Also, be sure to sign up for our distribution list. You will be invited to other events like the open houses and get timely updates about the project status.
