New Master Plan Discussion, Jan. 15
It’s something that hasn’t been done in this city since 1971 and it’s something the Revere Planning Office wants to see everyone in the community get involved with – a master plan for the city, also known as Next Stop, Revere.
The city kicks off the planning process on Jan. 15 from 6-8 p.m. at the Rumney Marsh Academy, 140 American Legion Highway.
“Prior to 1971 the last master plan was in 1958,” said Techrosette Lang, the city planner. “Today, It’s been over four decades and it’s a pretty pivotal time with all the development that’s happening, the population growth and regional trends in general.”
At the kick-off open house event MAPC will share with the community members all the content areas of the plan such as: transportation, open space and recreation, sustainability, housing issues, types and affordability, economic development, what anchor tenants are wanted in the community, to job opportunities, public health (from substance abuse to healthy living issues), infrastructure and environment issues, Revere Beach, cultural diversity, zoning and land use.
