Spring ResiStat Meetings to Start April 24th

The spring 2012 ResiStat Community Meetings with Mayor Curtatone and the City's Aldermen are here. Seven neighborhood meetings, one in each ward, will be held in the coming weeks starting Tuesday, April 24th. Mayor Curtatone, Ward and At-large Aldermen, Somerville Police and City staff will discuss issues important to residents—from the latest crime stats and upcoming neighborhood improvements to citywide initiatives including the Green Line Extension, our new data-driven school initiative SomerPromise, the Urban Agriculture Initiative, and more. Light refreshments will be served at a meet-and-greet after each meeting, where residents can talk with City officials and their neighbors.

Residents are invited to help shape the meeting agendas by visiting the ResiStat website,, where they can take the Meeting Survey (see tab on right side of page) to propose topics for discussion. Residents may also call ResiStat Coordinator Denise Taylor at 617-625-6600 x2103 to suggest topics.
