A public meeting on the Green Line Extension final environmental impact report is scheduled for June 30 at 6 p.m. at the Somerville High School auditorium. The meeting is to provide an opportunity for members of the public, agency representatives and other project stakeholders to learn about changes to the project and ask questions. The report will be available Wednesday on the project website, at area libraries and by request. The comment period for the document will be 30 days; all comments are due at the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act office by July 23. More information about the report will be posted when published, said Katherine Fichter, project manager for the extension project.
