ATTLEBORO HAS SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER
Attleboro may not have been host to the sport of kings, however, the former Jewelry City’s potential sparkles far brighter than Salem could ever dream. 40 miles south of Boston, 10 Miles north of Providence, the commuter train running straight through our downtown connecting both capital cities. Interstate 95 providing multiple exits and hub routes of 495 and 295 ringing the suburbs around Boston and Providence respectfully, we are positioned in the sweet spot for a revitalization that will set our community on a path for economic growth and financial independence.
We have to think and, more importantly, act bigger. We are not going to get this done with spotty purchases of parcels of land that are dependent of federal, state and local grant money (tax payer money) and will take years before the first shovel even goes into the ground and years after that to actually produce the much needed tax revenue for our city. A new restaurant here, a brave entrepreneur there is not going to bring us to our fullest potential.
Multi-use development in a big broad stroke is the key. Multi-use supports each other. Commercial development along with urban housing units support that new restaurant and brave entrepreneur, without it the cycle of empty store fronts will continue. We have the ability to bring together the two rich cultures of both Providence and Boston, we have an awesome opportunity to create a community of such incredible diversity, a beloved city of vast backgrounds, heritages, food, art, education, culture, history, commerce and most importantly community.
HOW DO WE GET THIS DONE?
Vision, Determination, Growth Mindset, and Relationships. My plan for a $ 1 BILLION economic revitalization plan is real, it is achievable and it is within our grasp. We need to reach beyond our comfort zones and allow ourselves to want this, to go get this, to feel worthy of it. I will lead us to this place, to this goal, to this success. I have the relationships and the support and the vision to get us there. You won’t have to look far to find me, I will be right there with you, it will take all of us pulling in the same direction, working, grinding, never giving up or giving in. In the end we will all stand on the mountain top, all of us will be successful and we all share the credit. Nothing can be accomplished alone, it’s our time Attleboro.
