April 9 discussion: Key findings of Orange Line study

State and local officials are hosting a public meeting on Tuesday, April 9, to discuss  key findings from the Orange Line Opportunity Study, part of a multifaceted campaign to realize the full potential of one of Boston’s busiest transit lines.

This study is intended to help municipalities, public and private developers, and community groups advocate for corridor investments and plan for the future. The corridor is poised to experience a major wave of development over the next two decades.

The event will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, in the board room of Urban Edge, 1542 Columbus Avenue, Suite 2, Roxbury, MA 02119. [map]


The discussion will cover corridor assets, opportunities, and recommended actions, along with an overview of transportation-oriented projects already underway and an announcement about two recent corridor investments by the Department of Housing and Community Development.

The event will feature Governor Patrick, state officials, and representatives from the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, and the City of Boston.

The final draft of the report is available online (PDF).
