Governor names Revilak to Redevelopment Board

Steve Revilak, 2021 Revilak

UPDATED, Sept. 21: Precinct 1 Town Meeting member Steve Revilak has been named to the town Redevelopment Board, a familiar sight at meetings for a number of years as he took personal notes and followed development issues.

The town learned Sept. 8 of Gov. Baker's appointment to two years, completiung an unexpired term.

Revilak is also a member of the Master Plan Implementation Committee’s Zoning Bylaw Working Group and has served on the Zoning Board of Appeals since March 2020. He also takes personal notes about proceeding of that board, which YourArlington publishes.

He is a past member of the Zoning Recodification Working Group, which was responsible for recodifying Arlington's Zoning Bylaws (adopted by Town Meeting in February 2018).

Revilak, an avid cyclist, gets around primarily by bicycle, including commuting to public meetings when they are at Town Hall.  He's interested in seeing the town grow its commercial base, increase housing diversity and achieve net-zero objectives.

Mr. Revilak has a Ph.D. and M.S. in computer science from the University of Massachusetts at Boston, and a B.M. in music production and engineering from Berklee College of Music. He is a software developer by trade.

Asked who Revilak succeeded, Planning Director Jenny Raitt wrote that "David Watson served on the board from Sept. 28, 2016, through April 9, 2021, for two terms. Steve is filling the remainder of David's second term."
