East Cambridge's Skate Park; Somerville's Green Bike Lanes

SOMERVILLE—Insert "other Green Line" joke here: "The city put out a bid on Friday seeking a company to lather up existing bike lanes with green paint that are currently marked by white lines. According to the bid details, the one-year, $200,000 contract includes furnishing labor, equipment, materials, and plan details to paint bike lanes and other markings on the pavement for cyclists throughout Somerville."

EAST CAMBRIDGE—The skate park at North Point Park is closer than you think: "The recent announcement of a $1.5 million gift from Vans, the action sports apparel retailer, helps to solve the funding issue. Now the state Department of Transportation, which controls the reclaimed industrial land, needs to complete the land transfer to the state Department of Conservation and Recreation, which will maintain the skate park. Federal highway officials also must approve the transfer." [Globe]
