RiverFront District Master Planning Process
The RiverFront Master Planning Process will explore the opportunities and challenges related to the district in and around Gibson Park in relation to the adjacent Point of Pines and Riverside neighborhood as well as implications for the City of Revere as a whole. Areas of focus will include plans to deal with coastal flooding and climate resiliency as well as open space, recreation, transportation, and development.
The master planning process will be guided by an advisory group designated by Mayor Arrigo, which will consist of community advocates and neighborhood representatives as well as elected and appointed city officials, who will provide input, feedback and oversight throughout.
Four public meetings are scheduled for November and December; and all meetings will be held virtually. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. The meeting dates, related themes and Zoom webinar links for each meeting are listed below. Webinar information and this meeting schedule is also available on the City of Revere Meeting Calendar at www.revere.org.
