The Medford Green Line Neighborhood Alliance is continuing to evaluate potential station location areas for the Green Line extension in advance of the project’s Environmental Impact Study, which is to being in July.

This includes visiting areas along the corridor, examining existing conditions, talking with residents, business owners, abutters and folks who travel through these areas, and generally incorporating MGNA’s objectives and criteria into the analysis.

Now that spring is here (we hope), our next step in this exercise is to visit the South Medford area along Boston Avenue, from Ball Square at the Somerville line up to the Harvard Street area.

The tour of the area will take place this Saturday morning, April 28, with the following schedule:

9 a.m. – Meet in Ball Square at Boston Avenue and Broadway to study this area, eventually moving up Boston Avenue toward Tufts.

10 a.m. – Meet at Boston Avenue and Harvard Street to study this area in more depth.

11 a.m. – Meet in St. Clement’s High School to summarize and discuss the morning’s visits, categorize issues and concerns, and pros and cons of specific site locations.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend any or all of these segments. If you can’t attend, please feel free to email comments or input regarding the South Medford portion of the extension area to medfordgreenline@yahoo.com.
