PLAN: JP/Rox is a community-based visioning and planning process for the area between Washington Street, Columbus Avenue, and Amory Streets in Jamaica Plain and Roxbury. The most recent PLAN: JP/Rox Community Workshop was "Planning for People" and we discussed and exchanged information around housing and affordability; jobs and businesses; environmental sustainability; and community cohesion. 

Our next PLAN: JP/Rox Community Workshop is "Planning for Place" where we will look at the study area as a physical place. Where are areas we want to preserve? Where are areas we can grow? Where are areas we can work, live, play? Land use planning is a tool to regulate the use of land to promote compatability between uses and to help make our daily lives convenient, interesting and fun. Help to shape the vision of the study area through the next PLAN: JP/Rox Community Workshop through information and discussions around land use planning. The Open House starts at 5:30 PM, come early to talk to neighbors and staff. The Workshop begins at 6:00 PM.
