Monthly Meetings during COVID
Community members are invited to attend regular monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month, 7:30 to 9:00 pm in from September through June (unless otherwise noted). Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, all meetings are now held virtually via Zoom. You can receive links to these Zoom meetings by RSVPing here. (Please be aware that you must RSVP by 6:30 PM on the evening of the meeting you wish to attend.)

The agenda of each month’s meeting is available on the first page of the previous month’s The Whistler newsletter and via email on our community notifications email list (to sign up, click the link located in the navigation bar to the right of this page).

The Council regularly invites representatives from Cambridge city departments to attend meetings, including Cambridge Police, the Department of Public Works, Traffic, Parking and Transportation, as well as institutional neighbors Harvard University and Lesley University.  Topic-specific committees are organized as necessary.  Frequently discussed topics include:

  • Neighborhood quality of life
  • Neighborhood streets and sidewalks
  • Institutional development and its potential impact on the community
  • Trees and green space
  • Maintaining the character of Mass. Ave.
  • Supporting independent and local retail
