Community meeting – Monday, December 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

After feedback from City Council and community members, they postponed and reformatted the Public Safety Building meeting originally scheduled for November 10. On December 13 at 6:00 p.m., they will have a virtual kickoff to imagine a new 90 Washington Street. Attendees will be able to give feedback on the public safety building project and discuss with community members and neighbors opportunities on the rest of the site. What would you like to see here? What are your concerns? How to create a coherent site that also connects with the rest of the neighborhood?

The Public Safety Building Project will provide new facilities for the Somerville Police and Somerville Fire Department Headquarters and Somerville Fire Department Engine 3 at 90 Washington Street near East Somerville Station GreenLine. The project will also include community meeting space, a new park, and a realignment of New Washington Street to join Franklin Street. Construction is expected to begin in earnest in the summer of 2022.
