Just about the most important thing to an urban home owner (after crime and property taxes, at least) is transportation, specifically, public transportation.
The MBTA is soliciting comments from the public on where they should invest their money over the next five years.
From The Boston Globe:
The five-year Capital Investment Plan is in draft form and ready for public comment during a series of public hearings throughout the region that kick off Nov. 30 in Andover. These are largely walk-in, walk-out gatherings during which riders and taxpayers can look over the draft and comment. Those comments will have some impact on where the money is spent.
Details on where and when the hearings are taking place can be found in Mac Daniel’s weekly Starts & stops column in today’s Globe.
