Somerville Street Sweeping Resumes Monday May 18


Street sweeping is set to resume on Monday, May 18th. It is not mandatory to move your vehicle, though the City asks people to do so if they feel they can. Tickets will not be issued for vehicles in street sweeping zone, and the City will provide advanced notice before it starts enforcement in the future.

Yet it is important to clear debris from our streets so that catch basins do not clog, which leads to flooding in our neighborhoods. In addition, street sweeping reduces the amount of pollution entering our stormwater systems and the amount of allergens in our community at a time when we are in an emergency posture due to a highly contagious respiratory disease.
