Week of 10/24: Community meetings

Three meetings this week, mostly in East Cambridge / Kendall.

On another note, don’t forget our petition delivery party next Monday the 31st!

Also, send in an application to be on an Envision Cambridge working group (Housing, Climate and Environment, Economy, and Mobility.) Will be good to have someone with a biking / walking / public trans perspective in any of the groups. Groups will meet approx. 5 times in the first half of 2017.  Details here.
