Wheatland Street Condominiums

SCC acquired two parcels of land at 88 Wheatland Street in 1997 to transform what was an abandoned piano-parts factory into eight studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom condo units. The condominiums were sold in 2001 to low- and moderate-income first-time homebuyers through a lottery process. Priority was given to existing Somerville residents and minority families. The project continues to operate as an affordable condominium, with affordability preserved for future owners.

Walnut Street Apartments

In 2002, the affordability restriction on 110 Walnut Street was about to expire and the 12 units were at risk of being converted to market rents. SCC purchased and renovated the building and kept the units affordable through vouchers from the Department of Housing and Urban Development's project-based Section 8 program. By February 2004, existing tenants were able to stay in their newly renovated units and retain an affordable home.

Sewall Place

Sewall Place is a 14-unit, single-room occupancy development in the Winter Hill neighborhood. Formerly the Boys and Girls Club, the building has 13 housing units for formerly homeless individuals and one market-rate unit.

Link Somerville

Link Somerville, formerly Community Corridor Planning (CCP), is a grassroots advisory team made up of local residents who are committed to advocating for equitable community development in Somerville’s changing landscape. Link Somerville helps tie together a bigger vision around affordable housing, environmental justice, local jobs, and community planning through the lens of social equity.

Land Use Committee

SCC’s Land Use Committee is a space for community members to organize around land use issues.Our goal is to help demystify development processes and make planning more accessible so that everyone can participate, especially newer immigrants, working class families, and communities of color. We promote a model in which the starting point of good development is centered on grassroots efforts, community values, and meaningful decision-making.
