The Riverfront Master Plan is a cornerstone of the Town’s economic development goals and objectives, to create a resilient and dynamic multi-purpose riverfront with enhanced connections to Downtown’s unique shops, restaurants and services.
The riverfront investment will catalyze community development, brownfield reuse, economic resiliency, and revenue generation. The Plan’s opportunities build on the availability of intermodal access – automobile, bus, pedestrian, bicycle and by water – and include the possibility of restoring passenger rail service.
