About this event

Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt, Jr. and the Peabody Department of Community Development & Planning would like to invite you to attend a public meeting on May 20, 2021 to learn about the North River Resiliency, Canal Wall, and Riverwalk Project.

In 2018, the City of Peabody was awarded its first Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Action Grant by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs (EEA). The MVP grant allowed the City to explore options to improve the flood resiliency within the North River Corridor, address site contamination from historic use as a tannery district and evaluate an open space resource and Riverwalk that will enhance public access and vitality of the area (Phase I).

In 2019, City of Peabody was awarded additional MVP funding to further develop and permit the preliminary design concepts of the south bank stabilization and Riverwalk of the Resilient North River Canal Corridor (Phase II). Phase II includes the preparation of plans for the south bank and Riverwalk to 75% design, the generation of associated permitting submittals, development of a strategy for soil management and compliance under the MCP, and other services to support the project.

The meeting will be held virtually, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Assistant Director of Planning, Brendan Callahan, and Weston and Sampson Engineers, Inc. will present a brief project re-cap, an update on the overall site plans, the design of 24 Caller Street, and next steps. The presentation will be followed by a question & answer session, using the opportunity to gather feedback on the design so that the park’s features consider the viewpoints and interests of the community.

Please RSVP by May 18th. A virtual meeting link will be shared via email on May 19th, along with instructions for joining the call.

For more information, please contact Brendan Callahan, Assistant Director of Planning for the City of Peabody at: brendan.callahan@peabody-ma.gov or 978-538-5780.
