Week of Sept 19: Garden St, Holland St, and family cargo bikes

Tuesday Sept 20, 6PM, Garden St. online meeting

The city will be holding an online meeting to discuss their final Garden St. protected bike lane project design. Based on community feedback, they have chosen to turn Garden St. into a one-way street between Huron Ave and Concord Ave (option 3 from the previous meeting), which allows both more consistent bike infrastructure, and keeps more parking. Join the meeting to ask questions and provide additional feedback. More details about the meeting here.

Wednesday Sept 21, 5:30PM, Somerville Traffic Commission, Holland St. online meeting

Join Somerville city staff for a special meeting of the Traffic Commission to discuss new plans for protected bike lanes on Holland Street, which will add protected bike lanes on both sides of the street as well as increase the number of ADA spaces and loading zones. There will be an opportunity for public comment. Following this meeting, the Traffic Commission will reconvene to vote on the proposed plans. Meeting info, including the full designs, can be found here

Thursday Sept 22, 5PM, Garden St. in-person meeting, at Garden St and Concord Ave.

This will cover the same material as the online meeting on Tuesday, but allows for in-person interactions with city staff. More details here.
