Somerville Planning Department

Today, as part of the Climate Coalition of Somerville, I met with Somerville’s Director of Planning and the Senior Planner heading up the City’s zoning rewrite. We are pushing to ensure that the zoning code is aligned with the City’s carbon neutral by 2050 pledge. And the good news is the planning department seems to be right there along with us; they are working on sustainability elements in the code that extend well beyond what they had proposed in the Spring. A new draft will be published in 10 days, so we have a small window to get them even more input.
