Meeting with the MBTA, Thursday Sept 15th!

PSNA September 15, 2022 Meeting

Thursday, 7-9 PM 

At our Sept 15th meeting, we will host a representative of the MBTA to answer our many questions about apparent drug abuse and evidence of drug refuse in/around the Porter Square T station and the little T Park (next to Commonwealth Lock) and what the MBTA will commit to working with the neighborhood and the City of Cambridge to clean up.

We realize that this is a problem bigger than the MBTA, but because we love our neighborhood (and Cambridge) we are asking the MBTA to commit to helping us (the neighborhood, the City, and many others on the zoom meeting) with regular clean ups and working to alleviate the underlying problems leading to the conditions we are currently witnessing.

We have invited Cambridge and Somerville Councillors who have been most interested, the CPD's social support unit, members of the DPW (whom we are always asking to clean up the area), a representative of CASPAR's First Step program (who work with the addicts/homeless in the area), neighboring businesses who have ongoing significant issues (e.g., the shopping center, CVS, Commonwealth Lock), and others, to join us.

We thank Representative Marjorie Decker's office for helping us set up this discussion with the MBTA. Please join us!

The MBTA has asked for questions to be submitted in advance (though we will not limit our discussion to those questions) so they know how to prepare. Please post your questions in an email to with "PSNA Sept 15th Meeting" in the subject line.
