The MetroWest Regional Collaborative and Metropolitan Area Planning Council will hold their final public meeting on improving Route 9 for four local communities on Monday, May 20 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The meeting in Natick will focus on how to improve the stretch of Route 9 that passes through Wellesley, Framingham, Natick and Southborough, including the potential addition of compact mixed-use developments along the major thoroughfare that are more accommodating to pedestrians and bicyclists.
At the forum on May 20, officials will briefly review prior Route 9 planning meetings, and then will discuss traffic issues relating to "smart growth" areas, design guidelines and recommendations, and implementation strategies and phasing.
The meeting will be held at the Morse Institute Library on East Central Street in Natick, and free parking is available on the street and in the parking lot next to Natick Town Hall. The library is accessible to those with disabilities.
If a resident requires special accommodations to participate at the meeting, contact Bruce Leish at 508-881-2924 or email@example.com.
