The following is an announcement from the office of Lynnfield's new state senator, Thomas McGee:
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has announced that a Transportation Vision Hearing will be held in the City Council Chambers of Lynn City Hall, 3 City Hall Square, Lynn, MA 01901 at 6:00pm on Wednesday, December 3, 2012 relative to the future of the transportation system in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation continues in its series of statewide public meetings, to engage with residents, community leaders and business owners to discuss the future of transportation in the Commonwealth.
Legislation passed in August requires the Department to host at least six public meetings in advance of developing a long-term financing plan for the state’s transportation system next year. To ensure that all regions of the Commonwealth are represented, MassDOT will hold more than 15 meetings. The Vision Hearing is open to the general public to attend, as the Department of Transportation is looking to hear from customers and residents in order to create ideas and help prioritize agency initiatives now and in the future.
“It is great that the Department of Transportation will be holding a vision hearing in Lynn. This is the second to last meeting that will be held,” said Senator Thomas McGee. It is important for all those interested in voicing their vision for our transportation future, to attend and participate.” “Investment in transportation is a key piece in allowing our economy to develop and grow.”
