Cambridge Citizens Coalition
We are a group of concerned and deeply committed residents in Cambridge. Some of us have been long time activists; others are new to Cambridge politics and related issues. We come from various parts of the city. What we all share is an interest in thoughtful engagement and exploring what is in the best interest of the city as a whole. While many of us are focused at present on the proposal for a city-wide change in residential zoning we know that the issues are much larger than this and that what impacts one neighborhood in the end impacts all of us.
