The 2019 Annual Town Meeting approved $80,000 to fund the creation of a Sustainable Transportation Plan (STP) for the Town of Arlington: $60,000 from town funds in the DPW budget and $20,000 from the Community Development Block Grant. The STP will provide a vision for the development of the transportation system in Arlington over the next 20 years, building upon the Traffic and Circulation section of the Master Plan and its recommendations. Goals and recommendations will be developed to prioritize next steps for projects, programs, and policies to achieve this vision. It will focus on all aspects of transportation and mobility in Arlington, including walking, bicycling, public transportation, driving, shared mobility, and micro-mobility.

In January 2020, the town contracted with Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates to complete the STP, and a kick off meeting was held on January 13, 2020. Nelson Nygaard's proposal is available to view.

As part of the development of the STP, the Town will conduct robust public outreach in the form of public forums, surveys, focus groups, and other methods. Read the Public Engagement Strategy for the plan.

Any questions related to the preparation of the Sustainable Transportation Plan can be directed to Daniel Amstutz, Senior Transportation Planner, at or at 781-316-3093.
