  1. I was out of the country during the time of this meeting but from what I understand Davis Square is going to get changed with many more high buildings housing many more people and many more cars. This is not a very good idea. It may bring in more tax dollars for the city to spend but I thought the city was looking to eliminate much of the traffic in the city and promote bikes. More cars bring more air pollution too. Looks like the city is going in different directions without thinking this out.

    Also, if contractors and those involved in buying up Somerville property to convert or build large apartment complexes how do they like the idea of the city promoting, from what I understand, rent control? Rent control, if you do your research, is not a very good idea. It is not good for real estate pros or those who want to sell or those who invested or want to invest in the city and for renters too since property owners will not be able to maintain their property. It will hurt the little owners and the big owners. Property values will decrease making the city go down. I was told not too long ago by the alderman where I live rent control is illegal but think I was lied to.
