Today, I went to a City of Somerville neighborhood meeting for Davis Square, to participate in the city’s planning process for the area. I estimate around 75 people showed up and there was a facilitated “unconference” style process to break into small discussion groups on topics of interest. I joined a group that discussed how citizens can take the driver’s seat back from developers. We were pretty harsh; I hope the city got something out of the process.
