Gardner Urban Renewal Plan

Working with citizens, stakeholders, and city officials, BSC developed and implemented a revitalization plan through the development of an Urban Redevelopment Area (URA) Plan. The proposed improvements to the downtown area aim to reestablish the historic vitality and provide enhanced opportunity for urban economic development, improved quality and diversity of housing, and increased livability and amenities with additional open space and recreation options. Gardner’s URA contains a wide range of urban elements residential, commercial, industrial and recreational and proposed URA activities were grouped within “concentration areas” including zoning and policy, transportation, mixed-use analysis, housing, business and historic structures.
