After months of hard work by our SomerVision2040 Committee, community members, and the City, we have released the SomerVision2040 Comprehensive Plan! A big thank you for all the invaluable feedback hundreds of community members provided throughout this process. Watch the video of the January 9 City Council presentation (Somervision is from 0:14:15 to 0:24:45)

Ten years ago, our community brought together our best and most ambitious ideas to write SomerVision2030, the City’s comprehensive plan for 2010-2030, and it has helped guide our work since. Throughout 2019 we engaged in a new process to improve upon that plan, take stock of our progress, add many new ideas, consider how priorities have shifted, and extend the scope of our vision to the year 2040. The end result is the new and entirely community driven Somerville Comprehensive Plan linked above.
