A public hearing will be held next month to assess the environmental impact of the temporary Arborway Yard bus facility and discuss the MBTA’s decision not to fund a planned new permanent yard.

The hearing is set for June 13 at 4 p.m. in the Boston City Council Iannella Chamber in City Hall’s fifth floor, said an announcement Friday from District 6 City Councilor Matt O’Malley, who called for and is hosting the hearing as chair of the council’s Committee on Environment & Health.

“The Arborway Yard [on Washington Street] in Jamaica Plain is a bus maintenance, storage and fueling facility for more than 100 MBTA buses,” said the announcement. “Ten years ago, in a memorandum of understanding, the MBTA made a commitment to the Jamaica Plain community to build a new, environmentally sound bus facility.”
