This is how the City of Somerville responded to
"CDBG COMPLAINT for Somerville MA program year 2010/2011"
This response reflects an enormously deficient knowledge base within the City of Somerville's office of Sponsored Programs and Community Development with regards to fundamental disability-inclusive statutes, regulations and codes.
For example: In response to concerns regarding how many accessible and adaptable units have been developed in Somerville, the Director for the office of Sponsored Programs and Community Development claims that, out of a total of 376 units completed, 46 accessible units had been recently created.
However: All but 2 units out of the 46 that she listed are supportive/nursing care residences. Supportive residences are basically institutions- and entirely inappropriate for nonelderly persons with disAbilities who are seeking accessible, affordable, integrated housing in Somerville, MA.
and so on.
