American Planning Association on Green Line extension


In advance of its annual conference in Boston in April, the American Planning Association devoted its January issue to articles about the Hub, including a lengthy cover story on the Green Line extension project. Check it out.
“Generally, there has been little controversy about the Green Line extension – surprising, given its size and scope. Somerville in particular has wholeheartedly embraced the project. ‘We have so many activists and community groups, elected officials and city officials. We may not always get along, but one thing we all agree on is that the Green Line needs to come in,’ says Jennifer Lawrence, executive director of Groundwork Somerville, an environmental organization that’s part of a coalition called Community Corridor Planning.”
