Residents Encouraged to Take Online Survey to Help Shape Meeting Agendas
SOMERVILLE - Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and the Board of Aldermen invite residents to the Fall 2012 ResiStat Community Meetings, a twice-yearly effort to share the latest City news and data directly with residents and gather their feedback.
Seven neighborhood meetings, one in each ward, will be held in the coming weeks, beginning on Thursday, Oct. 18th with the Ward 7 - West Somerville and Teele Square Meeting. Mayor Curtatone, ward and at-large aldermen, members of the Somerville Police Department and City staff will discuss ward-based and citywide issues, and answer questions from residents. Topics will range from crime and safety reports, rodent control, and neighborhood improvements such as road, park, and library projects to a look at citywide initiatives including Green Line station area planning, a new sidewalk and road repair master plan, bicycle safety and enforcement, the Community Preservation Act, and a word from the Mayor on how the City is using data to drive down costs and improve services. Refreshments will be served at a meet-and-greet before each meeting, where residents can talk with City officials and their neighbors.
