The Friends and Family of Mary Haggerty Snyder, who died in May 2011 at age 87, have enriched the SWCP with a memorial to the woman who helped plan and implement the park as part of the relocation of the Orange Line in the 1980s. Mary Haggerty Snyder was a transportation planner who worked at the Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) from 1975 through 1981. She then joined Fay, Spofford & Thorndike, Inc., and became the planner for the MBTA’s Southwest Corridor Project in the Back Bay and South End. Ms. Snyder was a passionate transit advocate who worked on accessibility and transit issues at CTPS; was a member of the MBTA Access Advisory Committee; and a longtime member and officer on the Board of Directors of the Association for Public Transportation. In retirement, she was very active in planning and civic affairs on Martha’s Vineyard.
