    2) 12/10/2013 Lunch & Learn Presentation: CPX Update, Metrics
    Sponsored by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), Young
    Professionals in Transportation (YPT), and the Friends of the Community Path

    On December 10, 2013, we sat down over lunch at MAPC in Boston to
    discuss the Community Path Extensions connections to other regional
    pathways and to the highly anticipated Green Line Extension (GLX), as
    well to hear about measurable regional and local benefits of the CPX.

    Alan Moore and Lynn Weissman from the Friends of the Community Path gave
    an introductory presentation about the CPX progress, challenges, and
    goals. Eric Halvorsen from MAPC presented on MAPC's Community Path
    Extension (CPX) Metric Report, which aims to quantify just how awesome
    the CPX will be.
