A proposed 1-mile extension of the Neponset Greenway between Central Avenue in Milton and Mattapan Square would help knit together a regional off-road trail for walking and biking and give Mattapan residents access to a path they, like other Massachusetts residents, are paying tax dollars for. Proponents of the extension cite the health benefits to Mattapan residents, increase in property values, trail “completion” and social equity in urban planning as ample justification for the project. Opponents have mainly focused on safety issues: some Milton residents have expressed concern over the possibility that the linkage would bring perceived crime and/or violence to Milton; and the MBTA has objected to a possible at-grade train track crossing during a point in time when the ‘T’ is trying to engineer such crossings out of existence.
