SRPEDD is partnering with the towns of Middleborough, Rochester, and Wareham to identify transportation and land use improvements on Route 28 from Cushman Street to Charlotte Furnace Road.
Public feedback is essential to this study. Community members are encouraged to provide feedback about current transportation issues on this roadway, preferences for future development, and changes you would like to see to make the corridor safer and more enjoyable to use.

The Attorney General issued an advisory on March 15th, 2023 clarifying municipalities’ obligations and enforcement under the MBTA Communities Zoning Law (Section 3A of M.G.L. c.40A).
Technical Assistance Opportunities
SRPEDD is committed to pursuing funding and technical assistance for its member communities which are subject to Section 3A. SRPEDD has secured funding for a number of communities through a variety of sources, including MHP’s 3A-TA Program, Community One Stop, and DLTA. We have collaborated with a number of member communities to secure funding awards and/or technical assistance, including:
- North Attleborough
Community One Stop for Growth FY24 applications will open in May 2023 and close on June 2nd, 2023. One Stop includes three DHCD grant programs (Housing Choice Initiative, Community Planning Grant, and Rural and Small Town Development Fund) that will fund Section 3A compliance activities. If you have any questions about Community One Stop, please reach out to Lizeth Gonzalez.
Questions and Outreach
If you have any questions about the AG’s advisory, technical assistance opportunities, or Section 3A generally, please do not hesitate to reach out to SRPEDD staff members Robert Cabral or Taylor Perez.
