The Primary has passed and the stage is now set for the November election. In the coming weeks, Ward 5 Online will outline where the races are and give you an opportunity to make your predictions.
PennyPackers are ready to rock in Magoun Square and will be making their debut sometime next week. If you see the door open, do stop by and welcome them to the best business district in Somerville.
Another 15-minute parking spot will be piloted in Magoun Square in the coming months. Located in front of 514 Medford Street, the issue will be taken up again in December to see if it is adapting well in the square.
Olde Magoun’s Saloon is bringing back the Paulaner Oktoberfest Biergarten, this time, making it a 2-day event on Saturday October 5th and Sunday October 6th from 12-6pm! Paulaner is bringing an 18-wheeler truck outfitted with functioning taps and filled with each beer they produce including Oktoberfest Marzen, Oktoberfest Weisn, Pilsner, Lager, Hefeweizen, Salvatore Doppel Bock. They'll have a tent, biergarten picnic tables, music and authentic Oktoberfest food to go along with all the great beer. This is going to be the Oktoberfest event of the year you don’t want to miss!
Residents gathered at the Walnut Hill Auto Body Shop last night to get a first glimpse at a proposal for 6 units on the site. This development is the first of two that are being pitched to neighbors with more units being suggested for building directly next door. More meetings on the projects are being scheduled to allow neighbors an opportunity to offer recommendations and voice concerns.
