On Monday March 5 there will be a meeting to discuss organizing to address I 93 air pollution at the Mystic Learning Center on 530 Mystic Ave. Refreshments will be served at 5:30pm and the event will start at 6pm. I think this conversation is long overdue and action needs to be taken to mitigate the air pollution affecting Somerville residents.
