Community Engagement

SCR's Public Outreach Program

South Coast Rail will continue to have a robust public outreach program to ensure a transparent process and successful project outcome.

The project team will:

  • Work with the Southeastern Massachusetts Commuter Rail Task Force. The Task Force was formed in 2004 to help the region prepare for the impacts of the re-introduction of passenger rail to the South Coast. It includes representatives from cities and towns and non-governmental organizations, such as business associations and environmental groups.
  • Regularly provide information to the media and promptly respond to public inquiries.
  • Convene civic engagement meetings to hear directly from residents throughout the corridor.
  • Meet with cities and towns to discuss planning for stations, priority places for encouraging development and preserving natural resources, and addressing traffic, grade crossings, noise, visual impacts and other concerns.
  • Provide periodic briefings for Legislators and elected officials in the region.
