‘Slice of the City’ are early evening, drop-in style meet ups at green spaces in each of Somerville’s wards. The Mayor, City Council, and City staff will be present to mingle with residents. Join us to celebrate Somerville’s open spaces, engage with the City outside of formal meetings, and of course – enjoy some pizza. 

Among other benefits, ‘Slice of the City’ will build in language access under the guidance of the SomerViva Office of Immigrant Affairs, include seating and locations designed to ensure access and comfort for seniors or persons with mobility needs, and allow residents to address their top questions/concerns/ideas to electeds and staff in a welcoming setting.
