Neighborways Somerville: Willoughby
Hello! and thank you for checking out our gofundme! We are the Lesley University Management Student Association in collaboration with the Lesley University College of Art and Design's Studio Influx (senior design) course. We have set out to bring a "neighborway" ( http://www.somervillestreets.com) to Willoughby Street in Somerville. Willoughby Street is a wonderful close knit community full of lively neighbors who are inspired to create a welcoming and accepting environment for all. They seek to take back the steet from superfluous traffic and return it to dog walkers, cyclists, and most importantly children. We are looking to raise $1000 to implement the ideas of the designers directly onto Willoughby Street. The money will be used to buy materials (paint for murals, planters, construction material to build a "parklet", etc.) Any money not used directly on WIlloughby Street will be kept in a general Somerville Neighborways fund to support the next street that is to be transformed.+ Read More
