Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Summer is just around the corner and there is a lot happening in and around the neighborhood. Perhaps most importantly, later this month, a Somerville by Design for Davis Square project will begin (see sidebar box for all the details).The process will be community driven and will focus on a possible hotel in Davis Square, traffic and parking issues, and redevelopment in general. Other concepts such as a possible Business Improvement District (BID) may be discussed, as well. City staff will help, and residents will guide the conversation. I hope to see you there!
This summer, we have great events to look forward to like the annual Red Bone''s Pig Pickin'' and the regionally famous Art Beat Festival in July. In addition to fun and interesting things happening in the neighborhood, this is also the time of year when the Board of Aldermen reviews and approves the fiscal year city budget proposed by the Mayor. Information about the budget will be available on the city website in the coming weeks. All budget meetings are open to the public.
In addition to the budget deliberations, there are other alderman general meetings and committee meetings that you can watch through the city portal by clicking here. Regular alderman meetings stream live on the web (at that same link) and are broadcast on local cable access.
If you know of events or have announcements you would like me to include in a future e-newsletter, please send me an email to: email@example.com
