      On Tuesday, March 3, 2009, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.*, Rails-to-Trails
      Conservancy (RTC), the city of Somerville and other communities
      along the Mystic River will host a town hall meeting at Tufts
      University in Somerville, Mass. At this meeting we will share
      exciting plans to make your region a more walkable, bikeable place
      to live, work and play, and provide you with opportunities to be
      part of the process.

      Somerville is spearheading an effort to engage the Boston region in
      RTC's 2010 Campaign for Active Transportation to double the amount
      of money the federal government invests in walking and biking.
      Specifically, we are targeting $50 million to each of dozens of
      communities, including those along the Mystic River, Boston and
      Cambridge, to build a complete network of safe places to walk and
      bike more and drive less.

      RTC Northeast Regional Office Director Tom Sexton, Trail Development
      Manager Carl Knoch and Policy Outreach Manager Kartik Sribarra will
      be available to talk with you and answer your questions, along with
      local leaders. Please join us!

      What: "Active Transportation in the Boston Region"
      Where: Tufts University (Barnum Hall, Room 104), College Avenue,
      Somerville/Medford, Mass. Maps and directions are here.
      When: Tuesday, March 3, 6:30-8:30 p.m.*
      Why: To learn about and coordinate efforts to make the Mystic Valley
      and the Boston region a better place to live, work and play through
      more walking and biking.

      * Light snacks and beverages will be served during a brief
      networking period at 6 p.m. The program will start at 6:30.

      Please RSVP now to assist our planning.

      If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Winslow, city of
      Somerville, at 617.625.6600 ext. 2519 or swinslow@....
