Somerville Equitable Transit-Oriented Development Strategy

This report was prepared for SCC by Reconnecting America, the Center for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD).The report analyzes and offers strategy ideas to address the major impact the new Green Line Corridor and Assembly Square T-stop will have on land uses and development.

Reconnecting America worked with the Somerville Community Corporation to identify needs and opportunities for equitable transit-oriented development in the City of Somerville, with a focus on the planned extension of the Green Line. The report highlights demographic and real estate trends, and outlines a series of strategies for achieving mixed-income TOD.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
