Assembly Square is Somerville’s newest and burgeoning neighborhood, originally an industrial site, the area evolved into a suburban shopping hub before becoming a mixed-use main street. As numerous development applications are poised to continue Assembly Square’s transformation, it needed a Neighborhood Plan update. Where in other areas the challenge faced by the City has been to preserve and enhance the most desirable characteristics and potential of an existing neighborhood, here the focus was on realizing Assembly's full promise as a transformational area.

To realize this vision, Planning Staff and our design team have spent over a year engaged in a comprehensive public process and creation of an updated Neighborhood Plan. We are presenting the plan virtually on Wednesday, October 13 at 6 pm. We sincerely hope you can join us and are eager to hear your feedback!
