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.

Public feedback is needed to shape the City for the arrival of commuter rail service!

There will be a public open house meeting to gather feedback and opinions on existing conditions and desired future development for both locations! Follow this link for meeting details.
