Projects & Planning Initiatives
The City of Revere constructs various planning documents and guides in order to direct and articulate its vision for the future of Revere. These guides and policies are formulated by its professional and experienced planning team in the Office of Planning & Development with input from other municipal, regional, and state officials; nonprofits and local businesses; and community organizations and residents. These planning initiatives range from the all-encompassing Master Plan to development-based transportation studies. For more information, please see the contact information below.

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.
Revere Traffic/Transportation Studies
Over the years, the City has completed and cooperated on multiple studies revolving around transportation and traffic systems in Revere. The studies are typically prepared in anticipation of development projects, while others may be focused on a specific geographic scope. The studies include the Joint Saugus-Revere Rt. 1 Corridor (ongoing), Waterfront (2018, ongoing), Suffolk Downs (2018), the Mohegan Sun Casino (2016), Overlook Ridge (2015), Donnelly Square to Eliot Circle, Lower North Shore (2000), and Short Range Transportation (1987).
