After five months of work and something like 14 public hearings, the Congestion Mitigation Commission has finally made its recommendation. Here’s how the voting went down at this afternoon’s meeting:
13 yes votes.
2 no votes: Richard Brodsky and Denny Farrell
1 abstention: Richard Bivone
1 absent: Vivan Cook
Next stop on the timeline, March 28:
The City Council must vote to
approve the "Implementation Plan," send a home rule message to the
state legislature. A home rule message is a request from a city or town
council to the state legislature asking them to vote on legislation
affecting only that town or city.
Now that the policy making is done, let the politics begin.
