About the Event

Event Tuesday, December 17, 2019 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Join the City’s Economic Development team and Ward 4 City Councilor Jesse Clingan for a community meeting on Tuesday, December 17, to discuss the vacant site of the former Star Market on Broadway. The meeting, which will be an open house-style event, will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Healey School cafeteria, 5 Meacham St. Community members can drop in at any time to chat with city staff, talk to neighbors, and learn more about what an urban renewal plan could mean for the site.

The Star Market site on Broadway has been vacant since 2007. In June 2019, the City held a community meeting to explore whether residents would be interested in the City taking aggressive action on the site, including the use of eminent domain. Notes and feedback from that meeting are available at somervoice.somervillema.gov. As a result, the City is seeking additional feedback on two key questions:

  1. Is an urban renewal plan the right path forward for this site?
  2. If so, what should the plan look like?

Feedback will be accepted during the open house, but can also be submitted on the SomerVoice website at somervoice.somervillema.gov.
