There is little doubt that Everett is on the move to be a better place for all of our residents .
The catalyst of this surge may very well be Wynn Resorts, a company that continues to show itself as a good neighbor.
One positive outcome from the Wynn casino (whose genesis was the idea of Mayor Carlo DeMaria) is the talk of reshaping and growing Everett Square.
Some of the money to re-do the square will come from state resources, but some will have to come from the city itself — and it is the Wynn tax revenues that will make this possible.
Almost 10 years ago, when then-City Councilor Carlo DeMaria announced his candidacy for mayor, he talked about making Everett better, starting with making our parks safe and clean.
Well, he has kept his word about the parks and now the Everett City Council is hearing plans about the revitalization of Everett Square, a gateway to the Wynn resort.
We commend the City Council for taking an active role in the redesign of Everett Square. We know that working together, the Mayor’s office and the Council can achieve great things from this unique opportunity created by having a world-class casino-resort within our city’s borders.
