City of Somerville

Planning staff will be attending about a dozen community events and parks to talk to people about SomerVision and collect feedback about metrics.

To facilitate this process we created the SomerVision Card Game where participants can shuffle through our deck of proposed SomerVision metrics, and pick up to eight they think should be prioritized!

The SomerVision 2030 numbers (housing units, jobs, acres of open space, and others) captured some of the biggest priorities of that plan. The additional metrics we choose to highlight for SomerVision 2040 will add to those priorities. After we collect data about our resident’s selections we will share it with the SomerVision Committee.
If you don’t have time to join us we now have an online survey version of the game! Also available in SpanishPortuguese and Haitian Creole.
