    Public Safety Building Virtual Meeting

    Envisioning 90 Washington Street. Virtual Community Meeting - December 13th at 6pm - 8pm. Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, OSPCD, & Capital Projects want to hear from you! Attendees will be able to provide input on the public safety building project and talk with community members and neighbors about the opportunities on the rest of the site. Virtual Meeting will be held on Zoom and registration is required.

    Previous registrations for the November 10th meeting in the GoTo Meeting platform will be migrated to the zoom platform.

     Project Goals

    The public safety building project has several project goals:

    1. Deliver a modern building that can change and adapt to policing and fire administration day-to-day operations over the course of generations
    2. Help us achieve Somerville’s sustainability goals by being net zero ready
    3. Use design to be welcoming to all members of the community

    Project Site

    The 90 Washington Street site will be an area of incredible activity over the next several years. The PSB project will coincide with a realignment of New Washington Street to meet Franklin Street at a 4-way intersection. There will also be two additional parcels that will be redeveloped (Parcels A & C). Economic Development will lead a community conversation starting this fall on the future of those sites.
