Last night there was a forum and discussion on the Warrant Articles that will be considered by Town Meeting to bring Brookline into compliance with the MBTA Communities Act. The two Articles are the Consensus Article (WA1/STM4) and the M-District Plus Article (WA4/STM1). A recording of the forum can be viewed here.

Town Administrator, Chas Carey presented an overview of the MBTA Communities Act, Dick Benka presented the M-District Plus Article and I presented the Select Board's Consensus Article.

The presentations are listed below and are available for download.

There are two links that TMMs may also find helpful. They are:
