“We love being part of a vibrant community that has so much to offer us as well as our clients. We have been met with open arms from all the business owners right from the start.”
“From a business owner's perspective, I've had businesses in two other towns and neither can hold a candle to what Somerville has to offer. The support from the DSA is unsurpassed and the camaraderie among businesses leads to a tight knit, supportive community. For the patron, Somerville has it all. Restaurants, shopping, festivals, car shows, movie nights, comedy nights, jazz fest...I could go on and on.”

Suburban properties, including office parks and shopping malls, are developed, managed, and marketed by a single ownership group or management company. By contrast, ownership of downtown buildings and land is divided among over 200+ individuals and companies with no coordinated management to advocate for their interests, provide common services, or promote the downtown as a product and destination.
The Downtown Somerville Improvement District works to meet the expectation that owners have for a safe, vibrant, diverse and economically successful district. As directed by the owners, it does this by accomplishing such tasks as providing enhanced cleaning, maintenance beautification, training, promoting downtown as a destination, and gathering and disseminating pertinent data on downtown’s progress.
Committee meetings are usually held in a downtown business or Borough Hall. For updated meeting times, please email the DSA office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
