The Community Corridor Planning (CCP) Project and the Green Line Extension Design Working Group invite the public to a walk around the locations for the proposed Ball Square and College Avenue Green Line Stations in Medford on Saturday, December 4.
The Ball Square walk will begin at 10 a.m. Meet on the westbound side of the Broadway Bridge at the corner of Boston Avenue.
The College Avenue walk will begin at 11:15 a.m. Meet on the College Avenue bridge that spans the commuter rail tracks.
These walks are part of a series of site visits designed to get ideas and feedback from residents, business owners, designers, etc. that were proposed at a CCP community station design workshop this past May.
According to Ellin Reisner, co-chair of the Design Working Group, “The goal of the station walks is to prepare people interested in expressing what is important for the station designs for the GLX at the upcoming MassDOT Design Workshops.
“We hope that people will look at station access by pedestrians, bicyclists, buses, drop off, bike parking needs, lighting, station approach, character (materials, design), safety, connectivity, etc.
“We encourage people to bring cameras to document things that they see on the walks to help with design recommendations.”
CCP partners and MBTA/MassDOT staff will have preliminary station diagrams for the station location as well as copies of designs developed by community members at the CCP Design Workshop in May.
