Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Somerville Snow Emergency Tickets   Cambridge real estate agents tour their offices’ new listings every Wednesday.  Today, despite the dire forecasts, we had a dozen or more new listings to see in Cambridge and Somerville. 

Well, as it turned out, there wasn’t a storm.  In fact as we finished our tour it was 36 degrees and sprinkling.

Despite the clear streets the meter maids parking enforcement crews were out in force.  While viewing a beautiful condo at the Park Street Lofts in Somerville several agents received tickets.

Despite the lack of snow, despite the fact that there was no mention of snow emergency restrictions on the parking signs, and despite the fact that the cars were parked for less than ten minutes – perhaps less than five – several agents returned to find $100 tickets on their windshields.  That’s right – $100!!

Somerville Waives Snow Emergency Tickets

Somerville’s made the news before for excessively aggressive tagging and towing in advance of storms that never materialized.  I imagine they got complaints today – or perhaps the writing was on the wall and they decided to do the right thing.

Mayor Curtatone  has announced an abatement program for snow emergency tickets issued today, Feb. 10, 2010, for the storm that wasn’t. The snow emergency was lifted at 6 pm.

To receive an abatement for your snow emergency Somerville ticket you’ll need to pay a visit to the Traffic and Parking office at 133 Holland Street or to City Hall on Highland Ave.  If your car was towed only the portion of the tow charge that goes to the City will be refunded.
