City resumes meet-and greets with mayor, officials

Somerville residents have a chance to speak directly with Mayor Katjana Ballantyne and other city officials after a hiatus during the pandemic.

The city this fall is resuming its twice-yearly series of Community Meetings. The program, formerly known as ResiStat, consists of one session in each of Somerville’s seven wards, with an additional all-ward meeting presented in Spanish.

This year’s meetings will be held both in-person and remotely, from Oct. 3 through 27. At each session, residents will hear updates from Ballantyne, city councilors, and city staff about neighborhood issues, and have the opportunity to ask questions and to find out how to get more involved in the community.


Each meeting will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. For those joining in person, a social half-hour will be held before and after the meetings, offering attendees the chance to enjoy refreshments and for one-on-one chats with officials.

For more information about the Community Meetings or to attend virtually, visit somervillema.gov/communitymeetings.
