Somerville redevelopment

There’s a lot of redevelopment going on in Somerville right now. I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it. I do know that I’m not happy about the parking situation. I liked it a lot more when I didn’t have to worry so much about whether or not I could even get into my own reserved parking spot. (But who wants to hear an old man crab about his parking spot? No one, right? I should save that kind of thing for my Day One journal.)

It’s nice to have a Starbucks in walking distance, and it’s nice to have a supermarket too, after a few years without one. But most of the other development doesn’t really help me much. In theory, maybe having more apartments in town helps keep my rent reasonable. (On the other hand, if they’re all expensive “luxury” apartments, maybe that’s not so good for folks like me.)
