Ward Two arts and “fab” district zoning meeting, 6 p.m. Tuesday. Hosted by city councilor J.T. Scott, this meeting discusses proposed changes for allowable uses in existing “fabrication” buildings (zoned for uses such as artists’ studios, rehearsal spaces, artisanal production and small manufacturing) and which will be affected by the mayor’s proposed changes. Ward 2 has the most fab zoning in the city – and is the home of the Somernova business complex, where owners propose a $3.3 billion, 10-year project that would add 1.6 million square feet of space in various forms. The meeting is at Warehouse XI, 11 Sanborn Court, Union Square, Somerville. There is also a remote option.
