The Mayor of Somerville is looking to improve government accessibility by taking the conversation to constituents' backyards.

In a new program, called MIMBY -- Mayor in My Backyard -- Joseph Curtatone is asking for invitations to visit Somerville backyards, kitchens and living rooms.

"He'll bring the refreshments," said a post on the city's Facebook page this week. "You bring the conversation and perhaps your neighbors, family or friends."

Watch Curtatone explain the program, here.
