The Word Around the Ward
Make way for the Hubway bike stations! They are beginning to be installed this week and locations are spread throughout the city! Encourage neighbors and friends to rent from Somerville as this translates into a revenue stream for the City.
Huge changes up at the Armory recently. Longtime manager Deb McLaughlin has left to pursue other interests. Deb was responsible for such awesome events as the Surreal iBall and bringing the indoor Farmer’s Market! Best of luck to Deb!
Speaking of the Armory, word around the ward is there’s a group looking to loosen the restraints of the infamous 42 conditions placed on the Armory in the early stages of its existence in Ward 5. Thoughts? Feel free to comment below.
Monday marks the one month countdown to Election Day for the Register of Deeds race. I would like to wish both candidates the best of luck!
The Somerville News is reporting that a School Committee person is considering running for Alderman at Large or Ward Alderman come 2013. Any guesses on who it is? Feel free to comment below.
The SomerStreets “Seize the Summer” festival was this past Sunday and seemed more populated than last year. It was nice to see a lot of families and City Officials out having fun and enjoying themselves. Pictorial coming soon!
The Summer-Ville Cool Down was a great success for Somerville Local First last week! Thanks to Olde Magoun’s Saloon, Notch, and Berkshire Brewing Company for a great time.
The Somerville Progressive Charter School has reapplied this week with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Somerville Journal got the low-down on the story in a Friday publication.
