Somerville News: Green Line maintenance facility debate

“Maintenance facility presents obstacle”
Steve Mackey, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, said the facility is slated to cover eight to 12 acres in “the heart of the [Inner Belt] district;” a location Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone said “could screw up everything” in the Inner Belt’s future.
“It’s very important that that area is able to capitalize on the Green Line,” Mackey said. “You can literally put in millions of square feet of commercial development and thousands of units of housing; you can build a brand new urban mixed-use village over time.”
