A Pier for Revere Beach?

Talks are apparently underway at the highest levels, and are being led by Mayor Dan Rizzo and his development chief John Festa, to put in motion the possible construction of a major pier and dockage along an undisclosed location on Revere Beach.

The effort would include not just a pier but meaningful development around the entrance to the pier which would likely spawn the economic revival of water based industry and commercial entities along the beach that cater to beach visitors of which there are hundreds of thousands in any given season.

Such an effort would be a tremendous aid in making the beach an economic hotspot and a place where water based activities once again bring it to life for what is arguably its best use.

A pier by itself doesn’t have the ring of a game breaker but in this instance, a major pier jutting out to the sea, with dockage and boating related business all around could make a vast difference in the persona of Revere Beach.

Given the major changing of the tides and how that would effect a pier, it is a given the pier at Revere Beach would have to be substantial.

The more substantial the better.
