MGNA_Rt. 16 rendering and plan_Page_1The Medford Green Line Neighborhood Alliance strongly favors preserving the building, which would make the station project less expensive, less environmentally damaging, and less disruptive to the neighborhood.

The accompanying images created by MGNA show a concept of a repurposed U-Haul building and a possible station configuration.

The two alternatives are included in a Notice of Project Change (NPC) document that the MBTA filed to begin the Mystic Valley Parkway environmental impact study.

Members of public are invited to submit written comments on the NPC by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, November 28. Comments should be addressed to:

Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs

Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA)

Attn: MEPA Office

EEA No. 13886

100 Cambridge Street, Suite 900

Boston MA  02114

Following a review of the NPC and the public comments, the Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs, Matthew Beaton, will issue a scope for the environmental impact study. That is expected to be announced on December 8.
