Monica Lamboy, the Director of Somerville’s Office of Special Plans and Community Development, said the next step for much of what the City intends to do with this grant money involves community engagement. “We need to get input from the people who live near where the new stations will be in order to put together a plan that emphasizes the best of what Somerville has to offer,” she said.
