The Poplar Street Pump Station project will develop a portion of the ArtFarm site in Somerville’s Brickbottom neighborhood to provide critical stormwater management infrastructure and new park space. It is one in a series of projects underway to relieve flooding in the city, prepare for climate change, and reduce Combined Sewer Overflows in the region. Construction is estimated to begin in Fall 2022 and continue for three years.

ArtFarm is Somerville’s proposal for our next great public space: a self-sustaining art and urban agriculture laboratory designed to foster community engagement and creativity. A 2.1 acre site located at 10 Poplar St., it will serve as a park, urban agriculture site, and arts hub featuring the ArtFarm community center with performance and exhibit spaces. In discussions since 2015, the ArtFarm was conceived as a unique urban space bringing together residents and visitors. With strong support from community members and the Somerville Arts Council, a commitment was made by Mayor Curtatone’s administration in 2017 to make 10 Poplar Street the ArtFarm’s permanent home.

Please join the next public meeting at 6 pm on April 14th, 2021 to see initial designs for the stormwater facility, learn how it is being coordinated with other City projects, and provide feedback on:

  • Park features
  • Green Stormwater Infrastructure
  • Stormwater Education
  • Public Art Opportunities
