The Qwik Mart (Corner of Cedar Street and Highland Avenue) will be undergoing significant changes as commercial space and residences have been proposed for the location at a recent community meeting. Ward 5 seems to be a hotbed for development as the Sons of Italy already has a foundation, 235 Lowell Street has structures, the Shield Gas Station is getting ready to be cleaned up and Royal White (Warwick Street) has been sold.
Ward 5 Online would like to wish Carlene Campbell-Hegerty the best of luck as she resigned from her position with the Somerville Arts Council for another opportunity. Carlene has been a fixture with the Curtatone Administration and has overseen such events as the SomerStreets Festivals and the recent Restaurant and Market Tour of Magoun Square.
Could the City being changing its snow plowing methods? According to Mayor Curtatone, it is a serious consideration. During a recent ResiStat meeting, the Mayor acknowledged that the issue is pressing, but no changes will be made for the 2014-2015 winter season. 2015-2016 may see a pilot of side-switching in one section of the City.
With the holidays just around the corner it’s time to start thinking about holiday gifts!
