Mayor Ballantyne and City Council Invite Community Members to the Ward 5 “Slice of the City” Meet-Up Event

Connect with the Mayor, city officials, and neighbors over free pizza, refreshments, and kids’ activities at Trum Field playground

Mayor Katjana Ballantyne, Ward 5 Councilor Naima Sait, and the City Council invite Somerville community members to the Ward 5 "Slice of the City" meet-up event on Monday, July 22, at Trum Field playground (1 Franey Road at Cedar Street), from 5 to 7 p.m. This event was originally scheduled for Thursday, May 16, but was postponed due to weather. 

The Ward 5 event wraps up the debut of “Slice of the City," a series of family-friendly pizza parties in the parks that offer attendees a new way to connect and engage with city leaders and staff as well as neighbors, all while enjoying Somerville’s parks.

Staff on hand will be happy to discuss neighborhood projects, City programs and services, questions or concerns, or your favorite pizza topping. Additional refreshments and activities for children will be provided. 

Each "Slice of the City" event prioritizes inclusivity and accessibility, with language assistance available through the SomerViva Office of Immigrant Affairs and accommodations for seniors and individuals with mobility needs.
