北京中醫藥大學校長徐安龍率同該校東直門醫院副院長田金洲，東方醫院副院長胡凱文，針灸推拿學院副院長趙百孝等約十人，廿八日晚抵達波士頓，在劍橋市凱悅酒店和麻省中醫學會，美中醫學交流協會幹部座談，昨（廿九）日下午再到哈佛大學醫學院達娜法伯癌症中心（Dana-Farber Cancer Institute）舉辦講座，和哈佛大學高管晤面，商討合作可能。
由於波士頓市政府並不知道市內到底有多少個居民停車空位，靠居民停車證找地方停車有多難，市府並無概念。市內人口較集中的北端（North End），南端（South End），南波士頓（South Boston）普遍有停車不易現象。
波士頓環球報根據“自由資訊法”從波市府索得的數據顯示，波市共有300多人擁有五張以上的居民停車許可證，其中一對住在南端的夫婦Samuel E. Bain Jr.,，擁有十一張居民停車許可證，一名住在北端的市府員工擁有五張。

Lt. Governor Polito Kicks Off “Building Stronger Communities” Tour in Holyoke, Greenfield
Lt. Governor Meets with Mayors To Discuss The Community Compact Cabinet, Chapter 90 Funds
HOLYOKE – Lt. Governor Karyn Polito today began the “Building Stronger Communities” tour in Holyoke and Greenfield to meet with local officials and discuss ways to strengthen partnerships in all schools and communities across the Commonwealth. Last Friday, Governor Charlie Baker signed his first Executive Order, creating the Community Compact Cabinet chaired by Lt. Governor Polito, to ensure the Governor’s Office works more closely with local governments.
“Governor Baker and I both worked as selectmen in our hometowns and we understand how important it is for state and local government to work hand in hand to achieve greatness,” said Lt. Governor Polito. “Our mission is to bring our cities and towns to the table to create an effective and efficient partnership, driving stronger schools and communities in the Commonwealth.”
Polito also discussed the $100 million in new Chapter 90 funding that was released on the Administration’s first day in office to fund local road and bridge repairs for every city and town in the Commonwealth. The Baker Administration has pledged to protect local aid, funding for the homelessness and the Department of Children and Families.
"I am excited about these new initiatives coming from the Governor's Office. They will allow for a better flow of information between state and local leaders, in addition to giving cities like Holyoke the tools necessary to navigate the many state bureaucracies,” said Mayor Morse. “This is particularly important in terms of job creation and economic development, two areas where Gov. Baker and Lt. Gov. Polito agree we need to be working closely together."
“We are encouraged by this concept of a Community Compact. Regional centers, whether they are Gateway Cities or not, like Greenfield, Gardner, Gloucester and North Adams, are integral hubs of commerce, culture, education and jobs,” said Mayor Martin. “This Compact will allow direct communication with the Governor and Executive Secretaries concerning the unique and special needs of these local regional centers. The increased Chapter 90 monies began a long journey to repair and maintain our roads and bridges. Any assistance to abbreviate the bureaucratic process for action in dealing with these issues will be helpful.”
On January 8th, Governor Baker sent a letter to all mayors informing them that Chapter 90 apportionment for Fiscal Year 2015 were increased. Holyoke increased from $1,059,765 to $1,589,648 and Greenfield increased from $640,398 to $960,597. Click here to read more on Ch. 90 Funds.
About Executive Order:
• Empowers Lieutenant Governor Polito to be a champion for municipal issues across state government.
• Restructures the Department of Revenue to include a new Senior Commissioner for the Division of Local Services, reporting directly to the Commissioner.
• Creates a Community Compact Cabinet that will work toward mutual accountability, work to reduce red tape, promote best practices, and develop specific “community compacts” with local governments.
• These community compacts will create clear, mutual standards, expectations, and accountability for both the state and municipalities as we seek to create better government for our citizens.

MAYOR WALSH LAUNCHES GO BOSTON 2030
"WHAT'S YOUR QUESTION" TRUCK
Questions submitted by residents, commuters will serve as basis of long-range transportation plan for Boston
BOSTON - January 29, 2015 – Mayor Martin J. Walsh today launched the on-the-ground phase of the City of Boston’s Go Boston 2030 transportation initiative with the “What’s Your Question” truck, a glass truck that will visit every city neighborhood from January 29 to February 7. The truck is part of the larger Go Boston 2030 Question Campaign that asks residents and commuters, “What’s your question about getting around Boston in the future?”
Go Boston 2030 is an initiative launched by the City of Boston to imagine a bold new transportation plan for Boston for the next five, 10, and 15 years. The plan will be built on direct input from people who participate in the Question Campaign by donating their question in-person through the “What’s Your Question” truck, donating online at GoBoston2030.org, tweeting their question using the #GoBoston2030 hashtag, or texting questions to 617-925-6914. Participants can track their question throughout the process to see how their input fits into the larger Vision, which will be created from submitted questions. Everyone is encouraged to donate a question whether resident, commuter, or visitor.
“The Go Boston 2030 initiative is using the latest technology and real grass roots activity to achieve an unprecedented level of community engagement. We're hearing directly from a broad group of people about what their needs and hopes are for Boston's transportation future,” said Mayor Walsh. “Together, through this initiative, the public and city officials will build a bold and innovative plan that will improve mobility for residents, commuters, and visitors.”
The Go Boston 2030 initiative takes a unique approach to community engagement through the Question Campaign that combines cutting edge technology with grassroots, in-person interaction to gather input from as many residents, commuters, and visitors possible on what their needs and hopes are for transportation. The campaign was built on the premise that asking questions can inspire vision, make concerns visible, and lead to great ideas.
Roughly 1,000 questions have been submitted so far, which are available to view and track on the Go Boston 2030 website. To engage more people, Go Boston 2030 has also been advertising on the MBTA buses and trains as well as bus shelters. The goal is to have about 5,000 questions donated in this Question Campaign. The “What’s Your Question” truck will tour the city for 10 days and provide people with the opportunity to donate and display their question right in the truck. The stops cover every neighborhood in Boston – from residential to the business districts.
“Our last comprehensive transportation was completed more than a decade ago and things have changed in the city,” said Transportation Commissioner Gina Fiandaca. “We are developing a big vision as well as a concrete list of immediate improvements and long term investments to ensure that our transportation system is safer, greener, and more equitable for everyone traveling in Boston in the future. Working with residents and business, this vision will establish common goals for shaping mobility in the future.”
Following the Question Campaign, the submitted questions will be reviewed and organized into themes, which, in turn, will serve as the foundation for a Vision, shared goals, and set of early action steps to be released this spring. This will be followed by a comprehensive, long-term Action Plan to be released in spring of 2016 that will have resulting transformative polices and projects designed to increase equity in mobility, improve the economy, better connect people to jobs and education, and protect the environment.
The public will have further opportunities to weigh in on all phases of the process with public forums in spring to display the results of the Question Campaign. In the fall of 2015, there will be more public meetings to identify policies and projects to help turn the Vision and goals into an innovative transportation plan.
The Go Boston 2030 initiative is led by the Boston Transportation Department and is a collaboration of many City agencies, MassDOT, and the MBTA. The initiative is steered by the Mayor’s Mobility Plan Advisory Committee, which is co-chaired by Representative Russell Holmes, who represents the Sixth Suffolk district in Boston and Richard Dimino, President and CEO of A Better City, a business group advancing the economic competitiveness and quality of life in Boston.
