Thank you and please join us on October 25th to continue to work on bus, walking and biking issues

Hello neighbors!

Thank you so much for attending our 9/27 meeting about creating better bus/walking/biking options for South Boston!

Please mark you calendars to come together again on  
Thursday, October 25 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm  
at the Distillery Building, 516 E 2nd Street.

At the 10/25 meeting, we will divide up into three Action Teams (bus, walking and biking) to start to refine and implement the action steps you all brought forward last Thursday. Over the next 3 weeks, we will provide more information about the meeting details and pre-meeting planning; including a way to share ideas in advance of the meeting.

Thank you for making this meeting a bigger success than we had ever imagined! Over 50 people attended, including the Commissioner of the Boston Transportation Department (Tom Tinlan); leaders of the South Boston MOMS Club; representatives of elected officials; City Councillor Linehan; leaders of neighborhood associations; developers; artists; police; MBTA, walking and biking safety advocates; local business owners; longtime residents; new residents; students; moms, dads and many others. Your enthusiasm, creativity and intense commitment to our community is astounding.

Even better, over 40 of the participants volunteered to work together to move these issues forward! This is a good thing because the Action Teams will succeed according to the participants' level of passion, collaboration and hard work. This will be an ongoing process. Please try to bring a friend to the 10/25 meeting -- we need all the help we can get to advocate for better, safer and more accessible bus, walking and biking options for our neighborhood.

Hope to see you then and thank you again,

Stefanie, Elise and Aaron
