 Next Stop Revere: Master Plan

The City of Revere is worked with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to develop a comprehensive Master Plan guiding Revere into the future. A Master Plan is a policy guide that provides a framework for the physical development of a municipality. It tells a community what it looks like today and in what direction it wants to go in the future. The plan includes assessments of existing resources and issues, projections of future conditions and needs, and consideration of collective goals and desires. The Master Plan is not a zoning bylaw, subdivision regulation, budget, capital improvement program, or other regulatory document. It is meant to provide the framework for the development of these plan implementation tools.

Saugus River Watershed

For the communities of Revere, Lynn, Saugus, Malden, and Everett, the impacts of coastal flooding, erosion, and storms are already being felt. Future climate and sea level rise conditions are expected to exacerbate these impacts. The Saugus Pines River Advocacy for Regional Resilience (SPRARR) was established in 2021 to develop a regional plan for future coastal conditions and to build resilience in the area's most vulnerable locations. Join SPRARR for a community update on the Saugus/Pines River Regional Watershed Vulnerability Assessment and Regional Adaption Plan. Stay tuned for future events here

Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Program

The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness grant program (MVP) provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to begin the process of planning for climate change resiliency and implementing priority projects. The State awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. Communities who complete the MVP program become certified as an MVP community and are eligible for MVP Action grant funding and other opportunities. For further information, please contact Elle Baker at (781) 286-8188.


Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP)

The Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) is a comprehensive planning guide regarding the use and development of various open space within Revere including parks, recreational facilities, playgrounds, and green space. The City aims to protect and expand existing open space so that all residents will have abundant opportunity for recreation and access to open space despite financial constraints, dense development, and changing demographics.

The last OSRP that Revere published was for the period 2018-2025. For more information, please contact Elle Baker.


Revere Traffic/Transportation Studies
