Community Meeting on Hoyt-Sullivan Renovation Set for June 29th

Hello Hoyt Sullivan Playground Friends and Neighbors,

Please join us for a community meeting on June 29th to discuss plans for the upcoming renovation.

The City of Somerville Department of Parks and Open Space, and Ward 5 Alderman Mark Niedergang, are hosting a meeting with our team of landscape architects to discuss the proposed plans. Please join us. Your input is sincerely appreciated as we move the new designs forward.

Since our first meeting a year ago, we have acquired the necessary funding for the construction that we hope to start later this fall. We have been awarded a State Grant, secured Federal Community Development Block Grant funds, and were awarded Community Preservation Act funds, so have the ability build the park that will serve the community best.

We have also hired the landscape architecture firm Klopfer Martin Design Group (KMDG), to oversee the development of the new design, and we look forward to introducing them to you and reviewing the ideas that they have been developing.

Please join us on the 29th. We want to be sure our plans for the upcoming renovation reflect the needs of the community. English, Spanish, and Portuguese versions of the meeting flyer are attached above. Please share these with friends and neighbors that might be interested. The meeting will be Wednesday, June 29th at 6:30, at the Visiting Nurses Association Building in the third floor community room at 259 Lowell Street.
