State of the City Address by Mayor Rizzo

Story by Revere Advocate News     Mayor Dan Rizzo has often said that Revere is a “city on the rise,” and at his State of the City address Monday before a packed council chamber, he offered a roadmap in an attempt to show the city just how far. “For some time now, we’ve talked about Revere being a city on the rise,” Rizzo said. ”If you look out across the city today, you will see that Revere is literally a city on the rise, both in steel and concrete. Vanguard at Waterfront Square, Market Basket, Harley-Davidson, Harry Della Russo Stadium, 565 Beach St., TA Associates, For Kids Only, 39 units of senior housing at the former site of Reardon’s Restaurant, and the new Sgt. James J. Hill School represent over $150 million in public and private investment across our community.”

Full Story appears at Revere Journal   Mayor Dan Rizzo and Economic Development Director John Festa have scheduled the city’s second economic summit for Nov. 21 and one of the issues surely that will be discussed is state Housing and Economic Development Secretary’s Greg Bialecki’s land use plan for the newly named “Metro North” region that includes Revere and eight other communities, Chelsea, Everett, Charlestown, Winthrop, East Boston, Malden, Melrose, and Somerville.
