Share Your Ideas for the Future of Union Square’s Public Spaces at a Pop-Up This Summer

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, Ward 2 City Councilor J.T. Scott, Ward 3 City Councilor Ben Ewen-Campen, and the Union Square Community Design Team invite you to participate in a series of community engagement pop-ups to inform the future of Union Square’s public spaces.

The Community Design Team is a diverse group of 11 Somerville residents leading the research and engagement effort for the Union Square Plaza and Streetscape Redesign project. This team is using participatory action research (PAR) to engage community members to imagine and share new ideas for Union Square.

To kick things off this summer, the Community Design Team is hosting three pop-up events with activities designed to collect public opinions about Union Square’s streets, plaza, and public spaces. Join us at one of the following:

· Saturday, July 17, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Union Square Farmers Market
· Friday, July 23, 5 – 8 p.m., Union Square Plaza (rain date: Friday, July 30, 5 – 8 p.m.)
· Saturday, August 7, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Union Square Plaza (rain date: Sunday, August 8, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.)
