Public Stairways Project Community Meeting

The City of Revere’s Office of Planning and Community Development and the Department of Public Works will host a community meeting to discuss the re-construction of the public stairways located on Florence Avenue and Winthrop Avenue on Wednesday, September 22.  City of Revere staff and project engineers from Wesson & Sampson will be available to discuss the design plans, project scope and construction timeline for these stairways.   Residents and community members are strongly urged to attend. 

The reconstruction of the public stairways within the Beachmont and Shirley Avenue neighborhood has been an ongoing neighborhood and Capital Improvement Project since 2019.  Three sets of wooden stairways have been renovated or reconstructed with the last set completed on Hillside Avenue in the fall of 2020. Construction of these stairways were completed through fundraising from the Beachmont Improvement Committee, grant funding from America Walks, and the Revere on the Move mini-grant programs and other City funding. The City will begin the reconstruction of the remaining five sets of concrete stairways in the spring of 2022.  For more information about Revere’s Public Stairways Project please contact Julie DeMauro at [email protected] or Paul Argenzio at [email protected]

Northeast Metro Tech Dismissed Due to Propane Leak

Superintendent David DiBarri and Fire Chief Michael Sullivan report that Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School was evacuated shortly before the start of the school day on Thursday due to a propane leak.

No injuries or illnesses have been reported. No fire or damage to the building has occurred. Classes have been canceled for the day.

The Wakefield Fire Department received a call at 7:09 a.m. that an odor of propane had been detected in the building; the school operates with propane gas. First responders determined upon arrival that the odor was emanating from the area where metal fabrication classes are taught.

First responders removed staff from the building, and held arriving students outside. Propane connections have been shut off, and the building has been vented.

Students were moved to nearby Wakefield High School, where school officials are arranging transportation.

The source of the leak is still under investigation by the Wakefield Fire Department.
