We're starting the Fall ResiStat meetings this Thursday, Oct. 18, in Ward 7, that's the West Somerville and Teele Square area. Why should you come if you live in the area? Because this is your home and what the City does or doesn't do can impact your life every day -- from crime prevention and pothole repair to innovative service delivery to community events that make it feel good to live here. This is just an easy way to get informed -- and involved.
Get updates. Give Feedback. Eat.
This is your chance to hear about the latest city and neighborhood initiatives and news and to share your feedback, concerns and ideas. You might even meet a few neighbors too. Come early for the Meet-and-Greet and you can talk directly with City representatives and staff as well. In short, we're inviting you to be a part of your community. Oh, and we're serving pizza and refreshments too.
