This committee combines both events and marketing for Downtown Somerville.
Purpose of the Design Committee
The Design Committee plays a key role in shaping the physical image of the downtown as a place that is attractive to shoppers, investors, business owners, and visitors, through a variety of place making programs. The committee provides recommendations to the Downtown DSA Board of Trustees with regard to short and long term programs.
The Design Committee works with the Borough of Somerville, the DSA Executive Director and staff, as well as downtown businesses and property owners to facilitate a positive visual image of Downtown Somerville that will enhance our thriving, vibrant community center. The Design Committee will focus on downtown aesthetics and appearance, working on matters such as way-finding signage, attractive window displays, parking areas, street furniture, sidewalks, and landscaping. The Design Committee will instill good maintenance practices within the district and work with the appropriate municipal departments to achieve goals.
