Public Meeting on the Assembly Square Orange Line Project

On Tuesday, November 15th, from 7-8:30pm, there will be a public meeting on the Assembly Square Orange Line project. Make sure to come out to this gathering, at Capuano Early Childhood Center (150 Glenn St., Somerville), to have a say in the first new subway stop of the MBTA in decades!

Since the first planning meeting on January 12, 2010, the plan for this station has improved greatly, highlighting a much greater level of accessibility. The success throughout this planning process was only made possible by the involvement of the entire community, from residents to non-public project organizations, such as the MBTA, Federal Realty, and the City of Somerville.

This is a very important project for Assembly Square and Somerville, so come out and show your support! The formulation of this Orange Line stop will allow further development in the Assembly Square region and will facilitate projects such as the expansion of housing units, and the creation of jobs. Presently, there is a construction contract with the MBTA board, so this project is on the fast track of becoming a reality. Come out and help formulate the final steps in this long sought after proposition!
