Membership
Membership is comprised of one member from the Finance Committee, two residents in proximity to the South Acton train station, one member of the Transportation Advisory Committee, and five Citizens-at-large; two members of the Committee shall be regular commuters.

Overview

The Committee is comprised of about seven members, including one member of the Finance Committee, two residents in proximity to the South Acton train station, and four citizens-at-large; two members of the Committee shall be regular commuters.

The South Acton Train Station Advisory Committee will work with representatives of the MBTA to develop and recommend to the Board of Selectmen designs for the new commuter rail station, the Town owned parking lot, and adjacent MBTA property, including additional parking or other uses for any property and easements acquired in proximity of the station. The committee will also work with the MBTA on other town-related issues.

The Committee will coordinate its work with the Town Planner, Town Engineer, the Assabet River Rail Trail, Inc., neighborhood stakeholders, and other relevant town boards, with consideration to traffic flow management and building design. Of particular focus will be access from the south side of the station with the goal of mitigating vehicular congestion in the neighborhood and integrating alternative transportation modes, including the local shuttle bus service, bicycles and pedestrian walkways. The Committee will continue to monitor and advise the Board of Selectmen on both onsite and remote issues related to the station.
