I am eager to see the Cambridge we can build together – a Cambridge that is better and stronger for all of us, that centers our most affected community members and that listens deeply to their voices. The Heart program is the affirmation of life and community that we are building together.
Public meetings this week look at a condo conversion, closing Central Square to car traffic – along with four topics delayed from last week – as well as hiring the next city manager, ensuring after-school programming for the fall and adding Summer Shack and Bar-Enza to Harvard Square’s dining mix.
City councillors used their “charter right” four times Monday to delay discussion on a variety of topics by one week. despite there being just one meeting to go before their summer break. Millions in funding, a reparations plan, government reforms and a treat rescue are briefly on hold.
The Central Square branch of the Cambridge Public Library was approved Monday for a study of its space needs, but city councillors say staff needs to think bigger – such asbuilding a tower of public housing with the library on its lower floors. Maybe even expanding to the neighboring parking garage.
