About the Event

Event |


Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and members of the Tufts Partnership Negotiating Committee invite residents to a community meeting on Thursday, March 5, for an update on the current status of negotiations with Tufts University about a new Partnership Agreement between the City and the University. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the atrium room of the TAB Building, 167 Holland St. The previous Partnership Agreement expired on June 30, 2018. In addition to Tufts’ Payments in Lieu of Taxes (aka “PILOT payments”), the Partnership Agreement covers issues related to student housing, partnership with Somerville schools, the university’s planning process, and other topics.

Last year the City held a public process to get input from residents about what they would like to see in the partnership agreement. More information about that process is available at Feedback gathered during the process has helped guide negotiations. Although negotiations are ongoing, and specific proposals are still confidential, the Mayor and the Advisory Committee members will meet with the community to provide general updates about the process and the priorities driving the City’s advocacy.
