Bob Fishman presents to NAIOP Energy and Infrastructure Committee on key features of the New Quincy Center revitalization projectPrint PDF
On December 13, Bob Fishman, special counsel to the City of Quincy, made a presentation to the Energy and Infrastructure Committee of NAIOP about the key features of the New Quincy Center revitalization project. Bob was joined by Dennis Harrington, the Director of Urban Redevelopment in Quincy, and by Craig Seymour from RKG Associates, the city’s fiscal consultant. The presentation reviewed the city’s efforts to create the pre-conditions for downtown redevelopment through such measures as adoption of a DIF District, changes in zoning, adoption of an urban renewal plan, and construction of a new bypass road with ARRA funding. The speakers also reviewed the key provisions of the Land Disposition Agreement, the unique Chapter 121A purchase model for privately funded infrastructure, and the city’s novel use of the State I-Cubed infrastructure bond program to finance the relocation of Town Brook, a new bridge into the downtown, and a significant expansion of a more pedestrian-friendly Adams Green.
