More About Somerville City Hall
Head down Highland Ave. and you can't miss City Hall, which sits atop Central Hill next to Somerville High School. Built in 1851 as the city's first high school, the building has housed city government since 1871. Today, the majority of City offices are still at City Hall. But in a city of over 74,000, one building can't hold them all. So another dozen City offices occupy City Hall Annex on Evergreen St., a handful are at the Department of Public Works building on Franey Road, and a few are at other locations in the city.
Offices located at City Hall include:
- Mayor's Office
- City Clerk
- Election Department
- Assessor's Office
- Treasurer/Collector's Office
- Auditing Division
- Constituent Services
- Mayor's Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development (OSPCD)
- Parks and Open Space
- Planning and Zoning Division
- Transportation and Infrastructure Division
- Communications Office
- Information Technology Department
- City Solicitor's Office/The Law Office
- Personnel Office
- Purchasing Office
