Completed neighborhood plan.
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.
