TRA Participates in LOCUS\Smart Growth America 2015 New England Leadership Summit

By late 2016, Bay Area commuters will likely begin to see the first of a fleet of futuristic new BART trains barreling from San Francisco through the upper Peninsula, the East Bay and new stations slated to open in the coming years closer to Silicon Valley in Fremont, Milpitas and Northern San Jose.

The LOCUS\Smart Growth America 2015 New England Leadership Summit was recently held in Boston. The summit included local leadership from both city and state levels along with many members of the real estate development community.  

 

TRA Chief Operating Officer Fran DeCoste, who had a hand in organizing the event, was a moderator for the [R.E.A.L] Talks Session: Re-imagining Communities and Revitalization. Speakers include the Mayor of the City of Revere, Dan Rizzo, and Don Briggs, President of Federal Realty Boston. The speakers discussed development of the Wonderland station area in Revere, along with Federal's Assembly Square project. 

 

The sold out event was a great success for LOCUS! The 2015 LOCUS National Leadership Summit will be in Washington DC on June 2nd and 3rd.
