About the Event

Event Wednesday, April 14, 2021 - 6:00pm

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, Ward 2 Councilor J.T. Scott, and City staff invite you to attend a virtual community meeting to introduce the Poplar Street Pump Station preliminary design and its integration with the ArtFarm project. 

The Poplar Street Pump Station project will develop a portion of the ArtFarm site in Somerville’s Brickbottom neighborhood to provide critical stormwater management infrastructure and new park space. It is one in a series of projects underway to relieve flooding in the city, prepare for climate change, and reduce Combined Sewer Overflows in the region. Construction is estimated to begin in Fall 2022 and continue for three years. 

At this meeting, staff will provide an overview of stormwater site history, preliminary design goals, the conceived stormwater facility, and how its location at 10 Poplar Street is being coordinated with other City projects and area planning efforts. This meeting will also seek public input on included park features, green stormwater infrastructure, stormwater education, and public art opportunities.

The meeting will be held virtually. Learn more and register to attend at somervillema.gov/poplar.

Interpretation into Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Kreyol, or Nepali may be available upon advance request by contacting the SomerViva Office of Immigrant Affairs at [email protected] or calling 311.
