Episode 4: The Community is a Valuable Asset
This week on Building Better Communities with transit, we’re joined by Somerville Massachusetts Mayor Joseph Curtatone. The Mayor talks about Somerville’s proximity to Boston, it’s amazing density and variable housing types, as well as the new MBTA Green Line extension being constructed in the city. There’s also a discussion of how the community works together to come up with plans for future transit oriented development and how the process is monitored and can be recreated for future use. Finally the Mayor looks back at how the city has changed yet also stayed the same over his 14 years in office.
