A plan that could change the landscape of downtown Worcester for generations is set to be released to the public on Tuesday.
The Downtown Worcester Urban Revitalization Plan, the first public meeting for which occurred 14 months ago, is a bold and emphatic step to renew and reshape the city’s core.
With a total footprint of 118 acres, the $104 million plan by the Worcester Redevelopment Authority includes land from Pearl and Mechanic streets downtown to Lafayette Street in South Worcester.
Included within the boundary is the Midtown Mall and the vacant Wyman-Gordon property at Madison and Lamartine streets. CitySquare, including the former Notre Dame des Canadiens Church, and the Canal District are not within its boundaries.
