April 17 community forum to gather public feedback

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, April 11, 2018

REVERE – Do you live in Revere? Are you interested in helping to shape the future of open space and recreation in your community?

Join the City of Revere and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) for an Open Space and Recreation Plan Community Forum on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at Revere City Hall, located at 281 Broadway.

Through open house activities, participants will be able to share their ideas and priorities about parks, recreational facilities, playgrounds, natural areas, and more as the City updates its open space and recreation plan for 2018 to 2025.

At this event, which caps off almost a year of work between Revere and MAPC, attendees will have the opportunity to view the results of the online Community Survey, taken by over 400 Revere residents, and comment on the plan’s recommendations.

Additionally, the “Vision Tree,” a community-engagement project utilizing public art, will be unveiled at the April 17 event and attendees can add their own leaf designs to the tree.

Light refreshments will be served, and all ages are welcome to attend.

Funding for the Revere Open Space and Recreation Plan is provided by the Gateway City Parks Program through the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (MA EOEEA). Additional funding from MAPC’s District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA) Program and the Barr Foundation enabled this plan to include art, culture and public health elements.

For more information about the project, please contact project manager Emma Schnur, MAPC Regional Land Use Planner, at 617-933-0758 or
