The Town of Westborough is excited to announce that we have hired RKG Associates to provide a downtown development plan. The purpose of the project is to reimagine how the downtown can be transformed into a destination for the Westborough community and neighboring towns.
The goals of this project are to:
Develop a long-term, comprehensive plan for attracting and retaining diverse, sustainable businesses that contribute to a community development philosophy of “Placemaking," with priority given to the revitalization of the Downtown area, an existing commercial area;
Identify and address zoning challenges that prevent the sustainable build-out of economic potential;
Capitalize on the many natural, recreational, cultural, and historical assets as a magnet to attract tourism and create/retain complementary small businesses.
The Planning Department will be working with RKG Associates over the next 6 months to develop a plan and will be seeking public input throughout the process. Please check this webpage for any updates.
