FOR BROCKTON CAMPELLO NEIGHBORHOOD
Studio Luz was engaged as part of a consultant team to conduct a comprehensive community engagement process complemented by urban design and land-use research that helped define the needs of the city, and served as a basis for this new vision for Brockton that will benefit the surrounding Campello community. The Campello Complete Neighborhood plan establishes a continued vision for an economically viable plan for the redevelopment of Brockton. The city’s preliminary goals for the project are to realign zoning to meet community needs and stimulate the business economy with support from changes to land use regulations.
The Campello neighborhood is centered on Route 28, which links Brockton’s downtown with West Bridgewater. While Campello is the gateway between Brockton and West Bridgewater, that gateway is primarily auto-dependent, and includes both strip shopping centers and auto uses. The neighborhood plan is encouraging development and preservation of a walkable, mixed-use neighborhood, encouraging a range of businesses that serve the neighborhood.
Our team led an in-depth community engagement process for the Campello Neighborhood master plan, which was also informed by the 2018 Campello Visioning Report. Four in-person and virtual community workshops were held to discuss the topics of Land Use, Economic Growth, Design and Zoning. These meetings were complemented by a public input page hosted by the City of Brockton to engage community members and stakeholders and ensure that a diversity of perspectives could be heard.
