Help Design the Gateway to Your Neighborhood!

On Tuesday, March 13th at 6 PM at the Hyman Towers (50 Walnut Ave.) the City of Revere will be hosting a Community Design Meeting for the Shirley Avenue neighborhood. We will spend a little over an hour considering our options for the neighborhood’s ‘gateway’: the corner of Shirley Avenue where residents and tourists enter the neighborhood from the Revere Beach T Stop. Currently the site has an obstructive fence and bushes that attract litter (see the attached flyer for pictures). At this Design Meeting, community residents will have the opportunity to guide the re-design of the corner into a welcoming gateway into the neighborhood. Some questions that we may ask:


–          Should we remove a part of the fence?

–          Should we have public art? (What kind?)

–          Should we have a sign? (What should the sign say?)

–          Should we have benches or tables there?

–          What sort of landscaping should we have?


We hope to hear many voices from the community at this Design Meeting! Please invite friends and family. And feel free to contact me with any questions or requests for accommodations: Rachel Meketon, or (617) 889-1375 ext. 11.
