The last of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs and the Department of Transportation’s four public listening sessions around transportation will be held this Thursday, November 09, 2017 from 6pm – 8pm at the West Middle School, 271 West St. in Brockton.

These public listening sessions for stakeholders across Massachusetts will help identify the best state and regional policies aimed at reducing transportation sector emissions, increasing deployment of zero emission vehicles, and increasing the resilience of transportation infrastructure as the climate changes.

They are also welcoming comments on designing transportation policy solutions with environmental justice communities in mind. Please submit written comments before January 1st here, or email them to gwsa@massmail.state.ma.us.

The Union of Concerned Scientists can send you an action alert with suggested information on this topic. To receive that information once the listening sessions are complete, sign up here.

In addition, discussions are happening around Wellesley on this topic. If you are interested in learning more and getting involved, please email info@SustainableWellesley.com.
