Fall 2017 ResiStat Meeting Schedule

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and the Board of Aldermen invite residents to the Fall 2017 ResiStat Community Meetings, a twice-yearly effort to share the latest City news, data, and neighborhood updates directly with residents and gather their feedback. ResiStat is more than a great way to get an overview of what’s happening specifically in your neighborhood as well as citywide. The social time before and after the meetings also offer an easy opportunity to talk one-on-one with the Mayor, your Aldermen, and City staff and police—and to connect with your neighbors. (We serve pizza and kid-friendly, healthy snacks to make it more fun to come and chat.)
 
Seven neighborhood meetings, one in each ward, and a Spanish-language meeting will be held in the coming weeks. (See schedule below.) Mayor Curtatone, ward and at-large aldermen, members of the Somerville Police Department, and City staff will discuss issues important to residents and there’s always a lively Q&A where residents can pose questions directly to the Mayor and Aldermen. This year we’ll be taking a deep dive into SomerVision, Somerville’s community-written comprehensive plan to see what’s been accomplished, what’s upcoming, and where work still needs to be done. Meetings will also include brief updates on neighborhood projects and public safety data and information.
 
Refreshments will be served at a meet-and-greet before each meeting. Interpretation into Spanish, Portuguese, and Haitian Creole will be provided at every meeting. At the Spanish-language meeting there will be interpretation into English, Haitian Creole, and Portuguese. For more information about ResiStat, or with any questions, contact ResiStat Coordinator, Meghann Ackerman, at MAckerman@somervillema.gov or 617-625-6600 ext. 2120.
