Citywide Parking and Curb Use Study Kick-Off, November 9 and 10

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and the Somerville Parking Study Task Force invite you to a virtual community meeting to kick off the Citywide Parking and Curb Use Study.

The Citywide Parking and Curb Use Study will collect data to comprehensively understand Somerville’s parking system and develop recommendations to guide the City in bringing its parking policies in alignment with its goals, community values, and future needs. 

The study will be informed by public and expert input as well as the Parking Study Task Force, a 21-member group consisting of representatives from the City Council, the business community, the Council on Aging, the Commission for Persons with Disabilities, the Pedestrian and Transit Advisory Committee, the Bicycle Advisory Committee, and many City departments.

At this meeting, City staff and consultants will introduce the study’s scope and timeline and present the results of a citywide curb inventory and existing-conditions analysis. Attendees will be invited to share feedback about on-street parking and other uses for curbside space in Somerville.

The meeting will take place virtually, with two options to attend: Tuesday, November 9, at 12:30 p.m., or Wednesday, November 10, at 6 p.m. To learn more about the study and register for the meeting, visit somervillema.gov/parkingstudy
