Brookline Transportation Board Meeting - Presentation on Beacon Street Greenway

From Biking Brookline: 

On Wednesday, June 20, the Brookline Transportation Board will be hearing a presentation on an innovative idea to create a Greenway along the entire length of Beacon Street in Brookline by using the space in the center median more efficiently and in a manner that preserves center median parking.

The Beacon Street Greenway idea was suggested by Jules Milner-Brage, one of Biking Brookline's founding members.  Jules has been working on this idea with faculty and students from the Northeastern University College of Engineering.  

The presentation will be part of the Transportation Board's regular June meeting, which starts at 7 PM, and will be at Town Hall (333 Washington Street), Room 103.  

The presentation is scheduled on the agenda for 8:20 PM, but we suggest arriving 30 minutes early in case the meeting runs ahead of schedule.

Attending the meeting is a good opportunity to demonstrate support for better bicycling infrastructure in Brookline and to learn more about the idea, which has the potential to dramatically improve the level of safety and comfort for bicyclists on one of Brookline's most important routes.
