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.

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. Residents have private bedrooms and bathrooms and share a living room, dining room and kitchen. The Somerville Homeless Coalition provides supportive services for the residents.

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.
