From the Mayor’s Office


Since his first term as Mayor, Carlo DeMaria, has advocated for multi-use bike and walking paths that connect the City of Everett to other neighboring communities, including Boston. In 2008, DeMaria understood and supported the opportunity and importance of connecting significant destinations. He became one of the first mayors to promote the Bike to the Sea’s vision by connecting Everett to the City of Boston via the Northern Strand Community Path.

This past September, Mayor DeMaria continued to make that vision a realization by signing an agreement with the Gateway Mall to build a pathway extension from West Street over to the Gateway Mall and Encore Boston Harbor. By signing this agreement, the Gateway Mall is working with the City of Everett on designing and constructing a connection for residents and commuters alike to the Gateway Center, Encore Boston Harbor, and destinations across the river in Somerville and Boston.

Soon, the bike path that runs from Saugus through this area, and currently terminates at West Street, will be extended in partnership to continue on across Rt. 16, around the resort, and into Boston- providing cyclists with an excellent opportunity for a safe, scenic commute.

Mayor DeMaria stated, “The extension of the Northern Strand Community Trail represents a major opportunity for the City of Everett and its residents. Multi-use bike paths that connect significant destinations can bring increased economic vitality, improved quality of life, and better community health outcomes by providing easy access to physical activity.”

Connecting Everett to the City of Boston via a comfortable and safe multi-use path would create a more affordable, healthier, and more enjoyable commute options for hundreds of commuters, and a recreational outlet for hundreds more. The Northern Strand is also an essential section of a much larger vision for a connected statewide bicycle network.
