Despite all the development Somerville has seen in the past couple of decades, the changes pale in comparison to the transformation expected with 18 million square feet of new development slated, 30,000 new jobs projected and six new train stops arriving in the City in the next 10 to 20 years. The need to preserve diversity and affordability in our community has never been greater.
SCC is on the front lines of this effort to ensure development without displacement.
