Next Stop Revere is the city’s first comprehensive master plan in more than four decades. The planning process comes at a critical point in Revere's history, as it seeks to build on its unique identity, location, and place in the region, in order to ensure that all residents can benefit from its growth and development.

This full draft Master Plan incorporates extensive analysis of Revere's existing conditions, population projections, land use considerations, as well as MAPC's recommendations for eight Plan Elements (see Chapter listing below for these topics).

Incorporated throughout the chapters, and guiding many of the Plan's priority recommendations, are community input shared through master plan forums, focus groups, and online surveys. The draft Plan's public comment period closed on February 14, 2020.
