from the Boston Globe:
A proposal to extend the Worcester/Framingham commuter rail line through Eastern Cambridge to North Station met stiff resistance last night during a community meeting at the Morse School.
I have two responses to this opposition:
1) A Worcester resident needs to show up at one of these meetings to say, “Hey, we took CSX off your hands, now it’s payback time.”
2) Steven Nutter of Livable Streets Alliance asked: “How is this type of project different than a highway that brings people in from Worcester and Framingham?” It was unclear from this quote whether Nutter’s issue was traffic congestion or people from Worcester coming into the city of Cambridge. If it’s the latter, the city of Worcester is already doing a great job of alienating and driving out Worcesterites — call them for tips!
