With an unprecedented commitment to public safety and alcohol management, Patriot Place is operating well below the development’s expected public safety impact in Foxborough, according to a performance analysis presented by Patriot Place General Manager Brian Earley.
“For a development of Patriot Place’s size and significant food and beverage business our tenants generate, these are significantly smaller public safety incidents relative to what other developments of this size are experiencing,” Earley said of the public safety data presented at Tuesday’s Board of Selectmen meeting.
Earley and Dan Murphy, the Kraft Group's Vice President of Business Development and External Affairs, were invited to Tuesday’s board meeting to discuss Patriot Place’s performance to date and where the development was in relation to the town’s revenue and public safety projections from the 2006-07 Koff Report.
“Goal of presentation was to give a little perspective in what I consider to be a perception vs. reality gap regarding Patriot Place and most specifically public safety,” Earley said.
The data presented Tuesday showed Patriot Place outperformed revenue projections in fiscal year 2012 by 50 percent while operating under 75 percent of the expected public safety impact.
