Dan Rizzo, Revere City Councilor and Candidate for Mayor, is proud to share his vision for the revitalization of Revere’s Broadway Business District.
As Mayor, Rizzo will lead Revere in transforming the face of Broadway, undertaking efforts to invigorate this critical business district and attract new business owners and investor dollars to Revere. Rizzo’s development plan will preserve the area’s historic character while making large-scale architectural and infrastructural improvements, creating a robust commercial center that is inviting for residents and local business owners alike.
Top priorities include building and sidewalk renovations, streetscape and storefront enhancement, landscaping, alley clean-up, lighting improvements, and more accessible trash and recycling facilities. These improvements will beautify our downtown, bolster investor confidence, and promote the reinvestment of consumer dollars by making Broadway the choice destination for shoppers from both Revere and surrounding towns.
Rizzo will collaborate with municipal government and local business leaders to create a Broadway Business Fund, which we will use to transform Broadway into a thriving, vibrant district that will appeal to a diverse customer base. The initiative will draw funding both from State Community Block Grants and from a special public-private partnership Rizzo plans to facilitate between local businesses and city government. This collaborative partnership will allow city planners to draw on the expertise of both the public and private sectors, ensuring the interests of both residents and business owners are best represented.
Rizzo will be convening a roundtable of business and civic leaders on May 18th to discuss this revitalization initiative and develop strategies to improve Revere’s commercial districts and widen their appeal.
Broadway’s revitalization will be the first step in a series of district improvement projects that will act as a foundation for the significant downtown growth and development Rizzo plans to encourage as Mayor. The project will foster community pride and uphold Revere’s reputation as one of Massachusetts’ best cities to visit, live, work, and own a business.
