Somerville

Activist appointed to ethanol impact advisory

Continue reading below

Somerville community activist Wig Zamore as been appointed to a state-commissioned advisory group tasked with reviewing the potential effects of transporting ethanol by rail in Greater Boston. The group was formed after plans by Global Partners LP to ship ethanol to a storage facility in Revere along a commuter rail line were met with resistance from environmental groups and local officials last year. The state Department of Transportation is expected to release a report on the movement of ethanol through populated areas on Feb. 9. Somerville Aldermen president Bill White announced Zamore’s appointment during a meeting last week. Zamore is spokesman for the Somerville Transportation Equity Partnership, and he won the Environmental Merit Award from the New England branch of the Environmental Protection Agency in 2007. “I couldn’t think of anyone better than Wig Zamore because of all the work he does on environmental and development issues,” White said. The advisory group held its first meeting Jan. 10.
