SCC, along with Union United, City of Somerville, LOCUS, Union Square Main Streets, City Councilor Ben Ewen-Campen, and other Somerville residents have been hard at work to answer the question: How can we make sure the new development, and the investment in the new development in Somerville’s designated Opportunity Zones, directly benefits our community, and does not further gentrify it?
