You Say: How Should Somerville Improve Davis Square?
The city is hosting a series of meetings this summer to discuss streetscape improvements to Davis Square. What changes, if any, do you think should happen in Davis Square?
Somerville is looking to improve the streets and sidewalks of Davis Square, and the city is hosting a series of meetings this summer to seek the public's advice about it.
Previously scheduled meetings included a site tour on June 21 and a design discussion on June 26. If you attended one of these meetings, we'd love to hear your report.
Upcoming Davis Square-planning events include a community meeting on July 17 and a public presentation on Aug. 7.
Some people have already commented on Somerville Patch about what they'd like to see in Davis Square:
Jonah Petri, for instance, had a few suggestions, which included prioritizing the Community Path within the square, improving traffic-light timing and keeping the traffic islands.
Scott wanted to get rid of the "super tacky" sculptures on the poles in Seven Hills Park, an idea Ron Newman disagreed with.
Others felt Davis Square is fine the way it is. "From where I sit, it seems Davis works pretty well," said Eric Fellinger.
"Somerville needs to save money and stop reconstructing everything," said Rea.
