Green Line

STEP’s additional DEIR talking points

STEP generally agrees with the City of Somerville’s concerns with the Green Line DEIR. We would also add the following points:
– Design stations so as to not impede possible future extensions at Union Square and Mystic Valley Pkwy.
– Add much more bike parking, especially at where demand is expected to be high (the termini plus Lowell St).
– Ensure the alignment near Brickbottom is compatible with an at-grade rebuild of Route 28 to replace the McCarthy overpass.
– Add a community advisory process specific to the maintenance/storage facility.
