STEP is a community group dedicated to improving transportation in Somerville, MA. We advocate for the Green Line extension, a more livable city, and public health issues.
Thanks to everyone who dropped by to visit STEP at ArtBeat this year! We had a great time talking about the coming Green Line, the about-to-open Assembly Square stop, the eventually grounded McGrath Highway, and so much more. Keep clicking for more photos.
Ten years ago STEP came into existence to advocate for better transportation options in Somerville. One big focus was to ensure that the Commonwealth meets its legal obligation to construct the Green Line Extension. While we are still not able to board the Green Line in Somerville, progress is being made and we will continue to work toward its completion. A new Orange Line Station will open at Assembly Square in 2014, the first new transit station in the region in 25 years.
We want to extend a special invitation to you for your advocacy and work on the Green Line Extension and other important Somerville transportation improvements to celebrate our anniversary with us on May 20th – at Precinct in Union Square (back room) 7:30 – 9:00 pm for music, appetizers, and cash bar.
Before the festivities, we will hold our annual meeting from 7:00 – 7:30 to vote in steering committee officers for the coming year, pay annual dues, and other administrative business.
