Thanks for Boston MPO letters

Thank you to everyone who wrote letters to the Boston MPO about the importance of the Green Line and Orange Line in Somerville. 98 letters came from Somerville, which is almost half of all the letters the Boston MPO received regarding the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) document. 92 of those letters pushed for the Green Line extension, and 47 were about the Orange Line stop at Assembly Square. Thanks for being heard!
