ResiStat Community Meetings Start Oct. 18: Please Take Our Meeting Survey

It's that time again. We'll be holding seven neighborhood meetings with the Mayor and your Aldermen in the coming weeks -- and we need your input to help determine what topics we'll discuss. So please take our Meeting Survey.

Starting Thursday, Oct. 18th, meetings will be held in each of the city's seven wards. Mayor Curtatone, ward and at-large aldermen, members of the Somerville Police and City staff will be on hand to present and discuss issues important to you and to take your questions. 

Based on ongoing feedback, topics we are considering range from crime and safety reports, rodent control, and neighborhood improvements such as road, park, and library projects as well as a look at citywide initiatives including the new Green Line station area planning series, urban agriculture, bicycle safety and enforcement, and more. But, we still need your latest input.

Residents Asked to Take Online Survey to Help Shape Agenda

Please propose topics for discussion -- large or small --  by taking our Meeting Survey online HERE. Or, if you know someone who would prefer to take the survey by phone, please let them know they can do so by calling ResiStat Coordinator Denise Taylor at 617-625-6600 x2103.
