The Forum will take place on Wednesday, May 8 from 5:308:00 p.m. at Hill Elementary School (51 Park Ave.). It will gather community input in the areas of transportation, open space, sustainability and public health. Following an “open house” from 5:30-6:00 p.m., attendees will be guided through breakout sessions to provide input on strategies to address auto, rail, bus, bike and pedestrian transportation needs; how best to ensure community accessibility to open space and recreational amenities; and interventions to improve public health outcomes. Building on Revere’s recent Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness planning eff orts, input provided in the area of sustainability will help to inform a set of goals and strategies for climate adaptation and energy effi ciency across the city. Light refreshments, childcare and Spanish and Arabic interpretation will be provided. “Our fi rst forum was a great success and we continue to be encouraged by the large number of community members that have come out to have their voices heard as we develop a master plan to guide what we all want to see for our city,” said Mayor Arrigo. “In this fi nal community forum, we’re again working to get feedback that is representative of our entire city. I hope everyone will come out to join us as they have been since we began this process in January.” Next Stop Revere is the city’s first comprehensive master plan in more than four decades. The City of Revere has teamed with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) for a six-month-long community engagement process to inform policy, which will incorporate the community’s vision for maintaining and improving quality of life, and will span topics including housing, economic development, natural resources and open space, as well as transportation, climate resiliency, land use and zoning. The plan will identify a set of actions for the city government to take over the next 10-20 years. After completion of the community forums, MAPC will continue to solicit and incorporate community feedback through the summer and fall of 2019, with a fi nal plan scheduled to be presented to the city’s Planning Board in early 2020. pproximately 10 town departments recently participated in an emotional hourlong police escort for a sixyear-old Revere resident battling leukemia.
