Fall River Port Authority, pier boards haven’t met in years. Here’s what they must do ASAP.October 19, 2021
It’s taken about 20 years and millions of dollars in clean-up costs, but on Wednesday, officials said the City Pier is headed into the final steps of its redevelopment, opening it up for waterfront access. The Fall River Redevelopment Authority hosted a groundbreaking ceremony with Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito to help celebrate the milestone for the four-acre pier project.
Work will begin a week after Labor Day to finishing capping the pier, install grass, walkways, fencing and lighting. The RDA board intends to have the project completed by next June and a working, waterfront open space by the summer.
“Why is this important? This is not just about the City Pier. It’s about your vision to develop the waterfront, which is a unique asset that you have here in this great city,” said Polito, who as head of the Seaport Economic Council, helped secure two $1 million grants in 2016 and 2020.
