Name any development, economic initiative or city improvement project, and the Mayor's Office of Strategic Planning…More and Community Development (OSPCD) is sure to be involved in it. The Green Line Extension, Assembly Square and Shape Up Somerville are just a few of the initiatives and programs they play a central role in. In short, the over five dozen full- and part-time City employees who work in OSPCD's seven divisions are continually working to improve our City. The Department's divisions include:
Director's Office/Finance and Administration: They run the show, develop long-range plans for the city, plan the budget and oversee major projects.
Head down Highland Ave. and you can't miss City Hall, which sits atop Central Hill next to Somerville High School.…More 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:
