Ideas to revitalize neighborhood


During the summer, the city of Brockton and the Brockton Redevelopment Authority sponsored an urban land use and technical assistance panel that toured and analyzed Brockton’s Campello neighborhood to determine how best to revitalize it. In a report posted on the city’s website, Mayor Linda Balzotti and MassDevelopment president Marty Jones discuss a number of potential solutions. Among the short term ideas: promoting outdoor dining opportunities and sidewalk displays on Main Street; encouraging residential neighborhood associations; and improving truck access for industrial development. Long-term strategies include improving infrastructure in Keith Park; encouraging dense housing near the rail station; and exploring emerging trends in business such as small-scale and locally oriented manufacturing.
