The City of Somerville prepared the Community Development Plan through funding of the Commonwealth’s Executive Order 418. A CDP follows a specific framework outlined by the State, setting locally defined priorities for location, type, and quantity of new housing, open space, economic development, and transportation. During the months of May and June 2002, the city hosted four neighborhood visioning meetings and one final ‘Community Fair’, in preparation for the plan. The City hosted several more public meetings to receive community input on the issues of transportation, economic development, and housing in Summer and Fall of 2003.
