Parking at Central Library to Be Removed for the New Somerville High School Monday, August 12

To advance construction of the new Somerville High School (SHS), parking will no longer be available along the Central Library driveway off of Highland Ave. starting Monday, August 12. City contractors will establish a new work zone adjacent to the library to construct permanent utilities and foundations for the eastern wing of the new school. Library patrons will need to use on-street parking in the area for the foreseeable future. Two parking spaces on Highland Ave. at Walnut St. will be reserved for people with disabilities.

To learn more about parking on and around Central Hill, join City staff for the next quarterly meeting on the subject on Thursday, August 15, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Winter Hill Community School cafeteria, 115 Sycamore St. There is also a form on where community members can submit questions or comments.
