Completed neighborhood plan.
Join the Somerville Planning Department for our second Davis Square Neighborhood Plan fall meeting. During the first meeting, participants identified and discussed various topics they wanted to be addressed in the plan, in the second meeting we will focus on three of those topics: Proactive Maintenance of Assets, Arts in the Square, and Housing Affordability. Participants, planners, and experts will brainstorm strategies on how to achieve these shared goals through broad-based collaboration between the city, local non-profits, residents, community partners, and businesses.
Thursday, October 19, 6 pm, in the Baptist Church at 31 College Avenue
The Planning Division develops recommendations on how to best utilize our available land resources and meet the needs of our residents and businesses. We seek to develop more and better community focused spaces while preserving the character of Somerville, and incorporating the vision residents have for their neighborhoods. We pursue these goals by administering and implementing the SomerVision comprehensive plan, which addresses the City’s goals, policies, and actions for the years of 2010 to 2030. Our zoning code aims to keep these development goals aligned with our long-term planning.
