“The Winter Hill Neighborhood Plan sets forth a vision along the main street that supports
the daily needs and services of Winter Hill residents. The focus of each design is on the
public realm and pedestrian experience. The crux of this vision is the redevelopment
vision for the Star Market site. With this, we can move forward in achieving housing, job,
and open space goals for Winter Hill while recreating a main street where our local,
independent businesses can thrive.”
- Mayor Joseph A.Curtatone

A Brief History of Winter Hill
• Broadway – “Heart of Winter Hill” established in the 1630’s as Winter Hill
Road
• 1700’s & early 1800’s – dairy farms
• 1841 – Boston & Lowell RR brought rail service
• 1858 – Horse car line established linking Winter Hill to Charlestown and
Boston, spurring residential development
• 1860’s – Gas and water service started
• 1885 to 1890 – passenger rail service began
• 1890 to 1910 – 50% of Somerville housing units built
• 1900 to 1925 – Somerville’s commercial districts developed
• 1925 – McGrath Highway completed; permanent barrier to East Somerville.
• 1958 – Trolley service suspended; autos take over
• 1965 to 1973 – Interstate 93 built & Winter Hill now primary access to
Somerville from I-93
• When the trolley service ended and the right-of-way was given over to autos,
the main street neighborhood identity started to fade.

New Hierarchy of Broadway
• Pedestrians first…create walkable & bikeable community corridor
• Prioritize Pedestrian accommodations, streetscape, aesthetics, roadway safety, and bicycle accommodations
• Reorganizing the current right-of-way allows for all modes, additional open space, an increased tree canopy, and
dedicated areas for public and private seating

Winter Hill Neighborhood Plan
• Creating a vision and goals for Winter Hill that will serve as the framework and guidelines for the future
• Reimagining Winter Hill’s main street, Broadway, as a destination
• Pedestrian focus on retail: targeting a diverse group of tenants that complement each other and are
additive to the lives of local residents
• Improving accessibility and public spaces: encourage biking and add public parks
• Focus on mixed-use development
