Mayor Rizzo Establishes a â€œBroadway Advisory Councilâ€ to Promote Communication During Revitalization Process
October 3, 2012
Mayor 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 Council (BAC)” to offer input and advice with respect to this important project. Their first meeting will be held on September 6th where they will begin to review Phase 1 of this new and exciting revitalization project.
Some of the members of the advisory board include; Revere City Councilor Anthony Zambuto, Chairman of the City Council’s Economic Development and Planning Committee, Tom Yourowski, Owner of the Jewelry Box, Bill Goldberg, Owner of the Citizens Bank Building, Jeff Howe, Manager of Citizens Bank, Anthony Delvecchio, and both Laura D’Amico and Bob Upton, representing the Revere Chamber of Commerce, among others.
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. Beyond promoting job growth, this revitalization will be the cornerstone of future community-led public-private partnerships in our city,” commented Mayor Rizzo.
