The Word Around the Ward

Crafters, bakers and other vendors are needed for the annual Somerville Craft Fair held at Somerville High School this year. If you have items to sell, you can find more information and/or purchase a table online! The 24th Annual Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair will be held on Saturday November 29, 2014 from 9:00am-3:00pm at the Somerville High School Field House (81 Highland Ave). Admission is free to the general public.

Somerville Local First is holding our popular Harvest Fest event on Saturday, October 18 at the Arts at the Armory. You can purchase tickets here to either session. There are already tons of restaurants and businesses signed up and ready to offer their best in culinary creations and brews!

The development at 235 Lowell Street is moving along at record pace with a structure already set. There has been no action at the 231 location, nor any community meetings about it lately. You can see plans for 235 here and read more about past community meetings here.

The Community Path extension has been paved, but City Officials are asking that residents remain off as it is still an active work site.

The updated Lowell Street Station Area Plan will be published on the Somerville By Design website soon. Once available, it will be linked here on Ward 5 Online.

SomerStreets will be taking over Union Square on October 19th from 12-4pm, rain or shine. Do stop by for the Monster Mashup! This is the final SomerStreets festival for the year.

As promised, the Board of Aldermen has set the date of Tuesday October 14th, 7:00 PM for the public to deliver their perspective on the "Pay to Play" Ordinance that has been filling headlines since last year. This item has been the topic of much debate in the Aldermanic Chambers, as well as, social media, so the commentary will be worth watching.
