New Bedford’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Study is underway!

The New Bedford Department of City Planning (DCP), with assistance from the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD), is conducting a study of existing and future conditions for the areas surrounding the North New Bedford (Church Street) and New Bedford (Whales Tooth) platforms. The project team will first evaluate existing conditions and then present findings to the public to gather input through multiple outlets. The project team will then craft recommendations using public input to shape the neighborhoods surrounding the future platforms.

The Department of City Planning is holding a public meeting to gather feedback and opinions on existing conditions and desired future development for both locations. Public feedback is needed to shape the City in preparation for the arrival of commuter rail service!

The meeting date and time:
Tuesday, January 14, 2020 from 6pm – 8pm at the New Bedford Public Library. The library is located at 613 Pleasant St, New Bedford, MA 02740.
