In Spring 2015, Friends of the Healey together with the City of Somerville, were awarded a grant through the Massachusetts Community Preservation Act. This grant will funded research, planning and design of a multi‐phased master plan to improve the open and recreation space and historic character of the land near the School. The site encompasses the Healey School schoolyard and several adjacent and nearby areas, including the Mystic Housing Authority and the Blessing of the Bay Boathouse.

Our design, planning, and, like this business, community outreach consultants are GroundView (landscape architects and urban designers), Groundwork Somerville/Lawrence (community outreach) and Utile (architects and urban planners). Eden Dutcher, Principal of GroundView, is the lead project manager. Please contact Eden to answer any questions you may have about the process or to be added to the project mailing list.
