Spring ResiStat Meetings Set


Residents Asked to Take Online Survey to Help Shape Meeting Agenda

SOMERVILLE - Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone invites residents to the Spring 2013 ResiStat Community Meetings, a twice-yearly effort to share the latest City news and data directly with residents and gather their feedback.

Seven neighborhood meetings, one in each ward, will be held in the coming weeks starting Tuesday, April 30, with the Ward 7 West Somerville and Teele Square Meeting. Mayor Curtatone, ward and at-large aldermen, members of the Somerville Police Department, and City staff will discuss issues important to residents and take their questions. Topics will range from crime and safety reports, rodent control, and neighborhood improvements such as road, park, and library projects to a look at citywide initiatives including Green Line station area planning, the city budgeting process, and a word from the Mayor on how the City is using data and a systems approach to improve services and tackle new issues. Refreshments will be served at a meet-and-greet before each meeting, where residents can talk with City officials and their neighbors.

Residents are invited to help shape the meeting agendas by taking the Meeting Survey to propose topics for discussion. The survey is online here: http://somervilleresistat.blogspot.com/p/meetings.html, or take the survey by phone by calling Community Engagement Specialist Meghann Ackerman at 617-625-6600 x2120.

The Ward 5 meeting will be taking place on Tuesday June 18th from 7-8:30 p.m at the John F. Kennedy Elementary School cafeteria, 5 Cherry St. There will be a Meet-and-Greet with refreshments from 6:30 to 7 p.m.
