echoing the support for the grand junction path project - not only will it be an exceptional resource for the Cambridge community, but it is also important to the city's identity as environmentally friendly, active, innovative, and reactive to community needs and processes. As other cities build more and more public infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists, and other non-car movers, Cambridge needs to keep working to maintain our role at the forefront of community-based, sustainable urban planning. We need to kick this project into high gear! it will be a great addition to our quality of life and travel safety.
The grand junction bike path makes sense to me on many levels: It connects to already built bike infrastructure along the river in Cambridge, and the Somerville community path at the other end. It cuts through a dense, high traffic area part of the city. It encourages less car ownership which results in a more livable city and has many obvious benefits. Please look into building this path. Thanks!
Zero waste is an ambitious, long-term goal, but we can start by banning key non-recyclable materials such as styrofoam, improve education about recycling, and increase opportunities for urban composting (or at least public compost collection).
Full attention is needed for this very important project. As one who relies on a bicycle for transportation, bike lanes and bike sharrows are not enough to make biking feel "safe" in Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville. The Grand Junction Path is exactly what these communities need not only to create a safe way for bicyclists and pedestrians, but to also motivate and engage people to be active and healthy. We need this project to happen in order to pave way for future generations and to foster alternative, safe, and healthy modes of transportation.
I second the support already voiced below for the Grand Junction Path. For that matter, I encourage Cambridge to build a robust connected network of bicycle facilities that are so safe that we will see grandmothers riding bikes and we will be confident in their safety that we will let all our school children ride their bikes tp and from school every day.
