RICKY'S VISION FOR WARD 6
Help Find Solutions to Traffic Issues In Ward 6:
As ward councillor, Ricky would work with the Traffic Commission and local/state agencies to see if the traffic lights at Linden Square could be adjusted to give Revere residents a fair amount of time to cross through the intersection – not just for regional commuters traversing through our city on Route 60 East and West. This would help to alleviate backups along Washington Avenue.
Additionally, Ricky would work with the same agencies to see what could be done to allow traffic to flow at a better pace on Salem Street to allow for North Revere residents to access this main neighborhood thoroughfare in a safe manner.
Alleviating Flooding in West Revere:
As ward councillor, Ricky would work with local/state agencies to ensure proper maintenance of the floodgates and trash gates throughout Ward 6. This would prevent debris from accumulating in the culverts, which seems to be the cause of flooding during inclement weather events.
Ricky would also advocate updating and increasing drainage systems/catch basins around the neighborhood so as to ensure storm water can be collected appropriately and not pool on streets.
Additionally, Ricky would advocate that appropriate agencies take a comprehensive look at the effects of the Trifone and Town Line Brooks, as well as the feasibility of dredging sections of these brooks to increase storm water and coastal surge storage.
Thoughtful, Targeted Economic Development for Revere:
As ward councillor, Ricky would advocate to enhance the city’s commercial interests. Like many throughout the community, residents would like to see more businesses that would not only add to the city’s commercial tax base, but also entice residents to spend recreational time in the community instead of going outside the city or into Boston.
Be it more fun, modern restaurants like at Market Street in Lynnfield, a music venue like the Lynn Auditorium, a cider house like in East Boston or a children’s playhouse like in Peabody, Revere ought to have more businesses that will keep residents spending their time and money in our city.
In Ward 6, there is much potential for thoughtful, targeted economic development along Squire Road, and Ricky would push for more commercial development.
