Union Square: Design Charrette - "Walk, Bike, Ride, Drive"
Tuesday, March 10th 8-9PM - "Walk, Bike, Ride, Drive" - Union Square is a hub of transportation activity. How can our neighborhood plan ensure that streets, sidewalks, paths and public transit support our social, economic and environmental goals?
It’s been a busy couple of months in Union Square, with three large “Somerville by Design” visioning meetings in December / January and four weekly technical workshops in February. Now comes a really fun part of the public process – our three-day design charrette!
Here’s how it works: City staff, our design team, and our development partners at US2 will set up temporary office space in the old Post Office at 237 Washington Street from Monday, March 9th through Wednesday, March 11th. You can “drop in” at any time that works for your schedule between 10am and 8pm. You can chat with our project team, you can watch our designers sketch a hundred different ideas for new public spaces, transportation solutions, and office and housing development.
