Francisco Torres

TDI Fellow for Fitchburg, MassDevelopment

Francisco Torres is the Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) fellow for the City of Fitchburg and is therefore the go-to contact for any needs relating to TDI. Fitchburg’s TDI District represents the heart of this Gateway City. Anchored by cultural institutions at either end – Fitchburg State University and the Fitchburg Art Museum – the district is filled with historic architecture and public parks that create green space throughout the downtown. The district contains a dense, transit-oriented fabric with close proximity to the MBTA commuter rail (Fitchburg Line). With this, the TDI Partnership’s vision is to leverage these assets to revitalize downtown and transform the area into a college town with a thriving arts and culture scene in Central Massachusetts.
