The City of Somerville is assessing a bike lane scheme for Powderhouse Blvd involving an option to completely remove parking on one side of the street. This change would severely negatively affect Doherty Funeral Service, the adjacent field happenings ,the Presbyterian Church, the West Somerville Neighborhood School, and many residents.
Data collectors have reportedly been counting open street spaces and determined that many empty spaces equals no need for parking. Let’s show up in force to oppose this thoughtless plan. The data doesn’t show our needs because we’ve been completely excluded from the planning and revisioning process.
Please show up and say no,we won’t “just drop grandma at the front door”, as callously stated by a supporter of parking removal with regard to no need for funeral services street parking .
Please join us! Public comments can mean the world.
6pm this Wednesday, 5/22 , West Somerville Neighborhood School, 177 Powderhouse Blvd.
