MARLBOROUGH COMMUNITY COALITION CATALYST PLAN
AND DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Catalyst Plan (2012) provided an actionable framework of strategies in the neighborhoods’ priority project areas:

  1. Organizational capacity building

  2. Revitalizing the commercial district

  3. Redeveloping a community hub of green workforce development

  4. Integrated green infrastructure projects

 

The engagement and planning process created new neighborhood task forces in each project area to implement the plan. Six years later much of the plan has been implemented and the Coalition’s capacity to coordinate projects has resulted in increased funding and a new focus on community-managed redevelopment. The 2018 conservation and development strategy studied land bank and other vacant properties throughout all five neighborhoods of Marlborough for both development potential and ecological sensitivity. The outcome of this study is the identification of four preliminary focus areas that hold multiple strategic opportunities to build upon nearby investment for housing and commercial infill development as well as identification of land that holds great potential for environmental restoration and habitat connection.
