Thursday, March 24, 2016

 

Anne Gobi

Senator Anne Gobi and Representative Todd Smola announced on Wednesday that the town of Sturbridge will receive $10,000 though the Massachusetts Downtown Initiative (MDI) to conduct a feasibility study for seasonal trolley service for the town of Sturbridge. 

“I appreciate that a seasonal trolley is being considered. Sturbridge is a major tourist destination and a trolley may help to encourage more tourism and help to reduce some of the traffic congestion currently experienced during the height of the season," said Gobi. 

Smola added to that saying, "downtown Initiative Grants provide an incredible opportunity for local communities to plan for future development and growth. I would like to congratulate the Town of Sturbridge for securing these funds and I look forward to reviewing their results."

The grant will begin the process of making public transportation in Sturbridge more readily available and efficient. 

MA Downtown Initiative 

The Massachusetts Downtown Initiative is dedicated to making downtown revitalization an integral part of community development in towns across the Commonwealth. 

To do that, the MDI take a holistic approach, using workshops, programs, and professional consultant services to promote community growth. The method is focused on ensuring economic vitality and promoting downtown assets as well as encouraging community involvement. 

The grant awarded to Sturbridge to analyze the feasibility of a seasonal trolley service is one of 13 grants to cities and towns throughout Massachusetts.
