In January 2018, the Southborough Economic Development Committee applied for technical assistance through the Urban Land Institute’s Technical Assistance Panel program. The application builds upon the EDC’s 2017 Downtown Workshop and survey by seeking strategies to advance the priorities and visions expressed during these initiatives.
The project will bring in an interdisciplinary team of senior local professionals with expertise in real estate, design, land use planning, and other areas relevant to downtown revitalization to Southborough for a day-long brainstorming session. The goal of this event is to identify strategies to enhance the “village”-scale restaurant and retail amenities available to residents, beautify the streetscape, and increase connectivity and public gathering spaces in the Downtown, while preserving the historic integrity of small-town “feel” of the district.
Additional details about the program and opportunities to participate will be shared as they become available.
