Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone said the Fab Lab is good for the environment, economy and the community. “What’s happening is when we provide the means to producing environment, these innovators are bumping into those working in the green tech and other fields,” he said of Somerville. “Local production is part of our history, and in some ways, digital production has returned to our roots.”
