Boston 2024 Community Meetings

The group organizing the Boston 2024 Olympics bid will be holding 20 community meetings over 20 weeks so that folks around the state can tell them what they should already know: forget the Olympics, fix the T.

I’m really excited by the prospect of high-speed rail from Springfield to Worcester to Boston.  Why don’t we just do that and make all the necessary improvements to the T (and regional transit systems around the state) and call it a day?

The press releases I’ve read say there will be a meeting in Worcester.

It’s unclear when the Worcester meeting will be held; when I find out I’ll post it.

In the meantime, I’ll leave folks to meditate on how hosting rowing events at Lake Quinsigamond would work, considering how well traffic goes when we close one exit on I-190.
