An announcement from the Green Line Extension project team:
Green Line Extension Friends –
We want to thank everyone who attended Wednesday’s land use planning workshop in Cambridge. Your contributions made the evening a great success.
The next workshop will be held on Saturday, June 12, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Somerville - Argenziano School Cafetorium. The workshop will be part of a SomerVision open house, and discussion will focus on public ideas for the areas around future Green Line stations in Somerville and feedback on Somerville’s visioning and comprehensive planning process.
More information on this workshop can be found on the Green Line Extension website at www.mass.gov.greenlineextension. For language or access accommodations, please contact Regan Checchio, Regina Villa Associates, 617-357-5772 ext. 14 or firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week before the event.
We are also pleased to announce that a public meeting on the Green Line Extension Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) will be held on Wednesday, June 30th at 6 PM at the Somerville High School Auditorium. The meeting will provide an opportunity for members of the public, agency representatives, and other project stakeholders to learn about changes to the project and ask questions. The FEIR will be available on June 16, 2010. We will be sending out more information about the FEIR shortly.

Former Green Line Extension Project Working Group member Paul Cote has kindly shared a link to a personal project: Google Earth / Sketchup Greenline Station Workshop. As Paul says, “This project brings together the station plans from the Draft Environmental Impact Report and puts them in the context of a three-dimensional model of terrain and the buildings within 1000 feet of the Green Line extension. Detailed models for each station site can be downloaded and edited using the free Google Sketchup 3D modeling tool. Develop and share your own ideas about the station sites and their surroundings! The site will be updated as more people share their ideas.”

Thank you for your interest and participation. Best wishes for a happy and safe Memorial Day.
