About the Event

Location

Argenizano School

Cafeteria
Somerville, MA 02143
The City of Somerville will soon offer residents the opportunity to invest in Somerville’s future by purchasing minibonds. Minibonds not only allow purchasers to directly support the community’s collective goals by investing in the financing of some of Somerville’s capital projects, they also enable residents to earn tax-exempt interest.
 
A minibond is similar to a traditional municipal bond in which investors loan money to a city or public agency for an agreed period of time, receive interest on the investment, and get their loan paid back when the bond matures. The City will use minibond proceeds to support some capital projects, which are projects related to city facilities and property. Examples of capital projects include City building upgrades such as sustainability and accessibility improvements, park and library renovations, fire station updates, and street and sidewalk improvements.
 
Residents who are interested in buying Somerville minibonds will need to create an account through Neighborly’s website at www.neighborly.com.
 
Neighborly representatives, along with City staff, will hold two Minibond Information Sessions to answer questions about the minibonds and the ordering process. They will be held:
 
  • Tuesday, May 15, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Argenizano School Cafeteria, 290 Washington St.
  • Wednesday, May 23, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the West Somerville Neighborhood School Cafeteria, 177 Powder House Blvd.
For  questions about Somerville minibonds or setting up an account with Neighborly to purchase minibonds, please contact Neighborly at [email protected], or visit www.neighborly.com/somerville.
 
Minibonds will only be ordered through Neighborly Securities, member FINRA, SIPC & registered with MSRB, pursuant to a preliminary official statement to be made available during the ordering period. This information does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities. You will be responsible for making your own independent investigation and appraisal of the risks, benefits, and suitability of any securities to be ordered and neither the City of Somerville nor Neighborly Securities is making any recommendation or giving any investment advice.
