I support the Somerville Community Corporation’s proposed development of 181 Washington Street because Somerville is changing. The Green Line is bringing big changes with it. If we are to preserver the diversity that is the hallmark of our vibrant city and especially Union Square – we must embrace developers that look not just to build housing, but help us build community.
This project both revitalizes Union Square and retains the spirit of inclusion that makes our city an exciting, interesting and engaging place to live. Personally, I want to live in a place where all are welcome.
