I have been pointing out the gas leaks from sewers since I came here ten years ago, but long-time Arlingtonians just shrug shoulders and say they don’t notice. Two of the worst were/are at the driveway entrance to Robbins Library; and, actually the strongest smelling was/is (less frequent now I think) on the bike bath approaching the overpass at Grove Street.
I have noticed your signs on the curbs around town, but my sense is that people are “numb” and ignore them. What has been your response and corrective actions? Who actually responds to leak reports. It has been reported there are at least 50 under the streets of Arlington, and mostly ignored.
I can’t come to Meeting on March 13, and I am not a mother. But would like to come to any other organizing meetings on this issue that are open to all.

I got this question relating to your event on methane: I’m unable to make it to the March 13 meeting. I’m wondering if you can share what it is that will be proposed for me and many others in Arlington to heat our residences with instead of natural gas?

Paul Fenn, the inventor of Community Choice Aggregation and president of Local Power Inc., is in Massachusetts (where it all began) visiting family. If it would be helpful, he would be happy to speak at your event on the 9th, or meet with the group to discuss the intended purpose for
: that we not just green the power supply, but build a local renewable and efficient supply to replace the old utility structure.

Somerville Mothers Out Front is working on a flyer campaign around gas leaks tagging. I understand that you had such a campaign in Arlington. We would love to know how you went about this: What your flyers said, where you hung them, and what outcomes you were aiming for.
1. What was the goal of the flyers? Were you trying to raise community awareness in general about the existence of gas leaks, or did you hope to generate any specific results, such as having residents contact
, or contact their local officials or utility companies directly?
2. What information did you include on the flyers?
3. Where did you hang/place the flyers? Did you target specific neighborhoods? Libraries? stores? Cafes? Playgrounds? Telephone poles?
4. What, if any, results did you note from the flyer campaign?
We would appreciate any thoughts or recommendations you have about this.
Thanks so Much!

I would like to connect and see what kind of support we are getting from our legislators. Is meeting on this Thursdays and if so where? I went to the
hearing and heard the testimony from Ann Goodman ??… and was very moved and impressed.
