Abstract

Downtown Worcester lacks the qualities that should make it the life of the city. The goal of this project was to research ways to revitalize downtown Worcester, specifically the Common area, through the restoration of the historic Burnside Fountain. We proposed sustainable options to the City of Worcester for powering and restoring Burnside Fountain, otherwise known as “Turtle Boy,” to initiate this revitalization. Through the use of case studies, interviews, cost analysis, and a survey, we devised a detailed schematic for the sustainable restoration of Burnside Fountain and provided recommendations to the City of Worcester for breathing life back into the area.
