According to the agenda, the group exercise will include discussion questions about priorities and assessment of the study’s work to-date.

Central Square meeting tomorrow

Additionally, the city is holding an additional public meeting tomorrow, focused on Central Square. It is at 6 p.m., Wednesday April 11, at the Cambridge Senior Center at 806 Mass. Ave, opposite City Hall.

The Central Square phase of the Kendall-to-Central study will continue through the summer, with additional meetings on May 9 and June 13. This is unlike the Kendall phase which began in July 2011, and finishes around May.
