July 22nd Neighborhood Meeting on Star Market Development Proposal

There is a new development team looking at 299 Broadway, the former Star Market site. They are convening a neighborhood meeting on Thursday, July 22nd to share their proposal. 

 

What does all this mean?

While City staff continue to move toward implementing the urban renewal plan and engaging the Winter Hill community in that process, the goal has been to spur redevelopment of the site. The City has been and continues to be open to working with a development team that purchases the site if their plan is consistent with the urban renewal plan and supported within the community. Economic development staff will be on hand at the development team’s meeting to address questions about how the processes relate.
