Mayor Brian Arrigo is inviting both Revere residents and community stakeholders to the final presentation of the McKinley School Revisioning process on May 10. Through funding from MassDevelopment’s Real Estate Technical Services Program, planners in the City of Revere’s Department of Planning & Community Development (DPCD) held community meetings throughout the month of March that collected public input on how to rehabilitate the former McKinley School and repurpose the building into a community hub for art, education, entrepreneurship and workforce training. Consultants from Studio Luz Architects will present a summary of the meetings’ public input and display architectural renderings of how the building can be repurposed to meet the needs of the Revere community. Planners from DPCD will outline upcoming phases for advancement of the project from its early design phase to its future reactivation as an accessible community hub for art, education, entrepreneurship and workforce development. The McKinley School Revisioning process advances key programming goals from the 2021 Revere Workforce Development Plan, which is available to view at the City’s Community Development page.
This presentation will be held in person on May 10 at 6:00 p.m. at the Staff Sargent William J. Hill School (51 Park Ave. in Revere). This meeting will also be streamed live on Revere TV.
