Lower Mystic StudyDo you live, work, socialize, or commute in and around Sullivan Square? Are you interested in helping to craft a vision for better transportation there?

Join MassDOT, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, and the cities of Boston, Everett and Somerville for an interactive public forum on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 at 6 p.m. in the Transportation Building in Downtown Boston, located at 10 Park Plaza. The Transportation Building is accessible by public transit via the MBTA’s Orange Line (Chinatown Station) and Green Line (Boylston Street Station).

The neighborhoods around Sullivan Square in Boston, Everett, and Somerville are growing. The Lower Mystic Study aims to identify infrastructure improvements and policy changes that would make it easier and safer for people to move around the area, whether they bike, walk, drive or take the T. Boston, Everett, Somerville, and MassDOT are working together to explore a wide range of options and we need ideas from you.

Participants will learn how forecasted development in and around Sullivan Square in neighborhoods in Boston, Everett, and Somerville will impact transportation. Then, in small discussion groups, participants will help prioritize possible solutions to transportation challenges, and generate more ideas for the working group to consider. Public input gathered through this meeting, a forum in spring 2017, and an online survey will shape recommendations for optimizing mobility in neighborhoods in and around Sullivan Square.

The Nov. 9 public forum is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. To request free childcare or interpretation, please contact planning@dot.state.ma.us. To share your input in a survey, and for more information, visit the study website.
