Broadway Advisory Group to Meet on May 1st to Discuss Revitalization Efforts along the Cities Central Business District

April 22, 2013

Mayor Dan Rizzo campaigned on a promise to change the face of Broadway through a well thought out, community guided revitalization process. In order to make certain the business community along Revere’s central business district has a voice in the process, the Mayor has established a Broadway Advisory Group which offers input and advice with respect to this important project. Their next meeting will be held on Wednesday May 1st at 5:30pm in the City Council Chambers. All are welcome to attend the meeting.

The group will be meeting with Mayor Rizzo, and other City Officials, to review the second phase of the revitalization effort. Subjects will include a proposal to remove the old Police Station on Pleasant Street to create more parking, parking alternatives to the municipal parking lot, as well as other conceptual and design issues.

Mayor Rizzo’s proposed development plan will preserve the historic character of the area while making large-scale aesthetic improvements, creating a robust commercial center that is inviting for residents and local business owners. Top priorities include building and sidewalk renovations, street scape and storefront enhancements, landscaping, lighting improvements, and more accessible trash disposal and recycling facilities. These improvements will beautify Revere’s downtown, bolster investor confidence, and promote reinvestment of consumer dollars by making Broadway a “real” choice destination.

“As a business owner on Broadway and past President of the Chamber of Commerce, I know how important a bustling and vibrant down town is to our community. The Broadway Advisory Groups acts as a sounding board for our development plan in the downtown area. We cannot hope to change the face of our central business district without having business owners, and other community stakeholders, at the table during the revitalization effort. My administration will continue to seek out ways to get the public involved in the policy making process as much as possible,” commented Mayor Rizzo.

If you would like to get involved in the revitalization of Broadway, please contact the City of Revere’s Director of Economic Development, John Festa at or by calling 781-286-8111
