The Globe recently published an article about broad community support for the Green Line extension to Somerville. Community members are still fighting about the details, with a less than ideal amount of NIMBYism, but the project is moving ahead. It’s about time, as this project has been in the pipeline for a while. I wish it had been in place this summer, since it would have greatly reduced my travel time to Grace Episcopal Church in Medford. Unfortunately, it has taken a lawsuit filed by the cities of Somerville and Medford and work from groups like STEP to get the state and the MBTA to fulfill their Big Dig mitigation obligations.
