RVMS Board Members Attended the Go Boston 2030 Vision and Action Plan Release Discussion
Go Boston 2030 is a City of Boston initiative to envision a bold transportation future for the city for the next 5, 10, and 15 years.
In response to questions and comments from the public, Go Boston 2030 released a Vision and Action Plan on March 7, 2017. They hosted a panel with transportation leaders across the country to mark the release, and Roslindale was well-represented in the audience!
Roslindale resident and RVMS Board Member and Farmers Market Committee volunteer Liz Graham-Meredith said, "It was great to hear from representatives from other major cities that face the same challenges as Boston, and the approaches they have taken to be successful. Makes me excited about what we can accomplish in Boston thanks to the fervor of our neighbors have toward making Boston a safer and more mobile city in the near future."
"It is a credit to the advocacy of so many fellow neighborhood residents that Roslindale is well-represented in the Go Boston 2030 plans. Between the Arboretum Gateway Path, a dedicated rapid bus lane between Roslindale Square and Forest Hills, the American Legion Parkway multi-use pathway, and even an eventual Orange Line extension to Roslindale Village, this plan represents the great potential available to significantly enhance transit options in our community. Now it is on all of us to champion this plan to our friends and neighbors and to advocate strongly for implementation of these ambitious goals as expeditiously as possible. I am glad to be part of Roslindale Village Main Street, WalkUP Roslindale, and other neighborhood groups working to make these plans a reality," said Robert Orthman, Roslindale resident and RVMS Board Vice President and Economic Development Committee Co-chair.
We're looking forward to seeing what's next for Roslindale and supporting advocacy efforts of our local organizations.
