Consortium Members

On Monday, November 19, 2012, participants at the Sustainable Communities Consortium Meeting met at Northeastern University, and heard Keynote Speaker Stephanie Pollack report on the 2012 Sustainable Transportation Report Card and Mayor Curtatone of Somerville on the Transportation Finance Campaign.

Participants split into groups to exchange best practices and ideas on topics such as inclusive planning and expanding access to opportunity in transit oriented development locations. Read a re-cap of some of those "learning cluster" discussions on our blog
