Daytime and evening opportunities for public participation in shaping the future of Davis Square
The next phase of the City of Somerville’s “Somerville by Design: Davis Square” community planning process will take place Monday to Wednesday, Sept. 9 through Sept. 11. An interactive three-day public charette (a collaborative design session) will give residents, the business community and other stakeholders convenient day and evening opportunities to work with city planners and outside experts to shape plans for Davis Square. This event will build on input from the Davis Square community at a public Crowdsourcing event held in May and two public Visioning Sessions held in July.
