If you’ve traveled through Davis Square, you’ve likely noticed that many pedestrians don’t wait for the walk signal when crossing the street and after some data analysis we understand why. If you only cross when you have the walk signal it could take you more than five minutes to get around the square. Although crossing without the walk signal isn’t the safe choice, it has been the fast choice.

Somerville Speakup Line: ‘Thorough’ Process and ‘Expansive’ Input Are Most Definitely Inaccurate

Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,

The BOA had formed their strong opinions to support this tax before public input. Because the city refused, at the request of the public, to notify homeowners, many who are absentee, of these initiatives – all of which are damaging financially to property owners.
