Welcome to the Mid-Cambridge Neighborhood Association Web Site

Our aim is to reach more of our residents with helpful information.  Perhaps new residents will learn about the association and join us, or simply learn about the neighborhood and the shops, services, and facilities in the area.  New and longtime residents may find our calendar of events useful.  If you are interested in issues affecting the neighborhood, you may want to consult the archives of back issues of the M-C News.  However you use the site, we’d like to hear your comments and suggestions about how to make it serve you and your neighbors.

May 2011 Newsletter

  • Longfellow Council and Community School face uncertain future
    • The future of the Longfellow Neighborhood Council and its popular Community School is in jeopardy, as the 40-year-old program will be without a place to conduct its programs when the Longfellow School building closes this fall. If the Council and Community School are closed, MC would be the only area within the city without a Council or Community School.
    • UPDATE: The city has appropriated funds for the director and the program to continue through fiscal year 2012. It is still unclear where the program will operate during the 2012 school year when the Longfellow School building is scheduled to be closed.
  • Annual meeting features talk on native plants
    • This year's annual meeting of the Association is set for Wednesday, May 18, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Swiss House (the Consulate of Switzerland) located at 420 Broadway, corner of Ellery and Broadway.
    • Claudia Thompson, executive director of Grow Native Massachusetts, will explain why our choice of plants matter, and how native plants contribute to healthy soils and ecosystem biodiversity.
    • Coordinating Committee Election
  • Harvard museums construction updates
    • The Harvard Art Museums are renovating, restoring, and expanding their current facilities at 32 Quincy Street to facilitate the centralization of the collections, galleries, and curatorial staff of its three museums—the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum. The new state-of-the-art facility will provide far greater access to the museum’s world-class collection for the community and enhance the museums’ public outreach efforts.
    • GSD buildings to get upgrade
