Does Somerville really NEED more condos? With the recent proposal of the Maaco site (adjacent Market Basket & Milk Row Cemetery) to be re-zoned to mix-use development, the existing commercial zoning could be severely impacted in our city for generations to come. Join host KyAnn Anderson, as she speaks with Ward 4 Alderman Tony Lafuente and Space Equals Work representative Tim Devin, to discuss this important proposal facing the residents and business owners of Union Square. While the Commercial Corridor District 55 overlay works successfully in parts of the Union Square rezoning initiative, find out why for this particular area of the city, Somerville simply deserves better.
