For the past few months, I have been working with members of the Mass. Budget For All coalition and the Cambridge Residents Alliance to organize a public forum on transportation issues in Cambridge and Somerville. The event is being co-sponsored by Green Cambridge, 350Mass. Transit Group, and the Fresh Pond Residents Alliance.

"Solving Transit and Traffic Issues in the Cambridge Corridor" will be held this Saturday, April 30th, from 2 to 5 pm at the Cambridge Senior Center (806 Mass. Ave in Central Square). Everyone is welcome to join us for conversation, light refreshments, and opportunities for public input on a topic that is vital to our future.

The event will feature presentations and discussion with Cambridge Mayor E. Denise Simmonsstate Senator Pat JehlenCambridge City Councilors Dennis Carlone and Jan Devereux, as well as some of the best and brightest advocates in the field of transit, such as Rafael Mares (Conservation Law Foundation), Steven Miller (Livable Streets), Ellin Reisner (Somerville Transportation Equity Partnership), Kirstie Pecci (MassPIRG), John Attanucci (MIT Transportation Group), and many others.

To prepare for Saturday's event, listen to "Driving Us Crazy," a series of recent WBUR programs on how congestion affects Greater Boston’s commute. 
 
With questions swirling around the status of the Green Line Extension/community path project, and with the MBTA facing a State of Good Repair backlog of some $7.3 Billion, now is the time for officials, advocates, and residents to work together to promote greater mobility in our fast-growing, densely-populated cities. We hope to help advance this work at Saturday's forum.

The Cambridge Residents Alliance is asking for a donation of $6 at the door to help offset the costs associated with organizing the forum. That said, no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. To RSVP, please use this Facebook link or visit this website

Also please note that panelist affiliations are listed for identification purposes only, and the schedule is subject to change. Thank you!
