The PLAN: Dudley Square workshop on April 24 will begin with a special Resource Fair. Various City of Boston departments will be present to share information specific to job training, career services, education programs and small business assistance. Representatives from BEST, Building Pathways, Greater Boston American Apprenticeship Initiative, Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries & Boston Career Link, Project Hope, Roca, Roxbury Center for Financial Empowerment, Tuition-Free Community College Plan, YOU Boston, Restore/Facade Improvement, Design Services and On-Site Technical Assistance, and others will be available for questions.

Following the Resource Fair the workshop will focus on economic development goals and feasibility considerations for city-owned land in Dudley Square. Feedback from the workshop will be reflected in the Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for this land that will be produced in the coming year. Throughout the evening there will be opportunity for attendees to engage in productive dialogue with City/BPDA team members and each other on elements of the material being shared as part of the workshop.

PLAN: Dudley Square is an initiative to think strategically about the types of uses and the scale of development best suited for the future of Dudley Square and Roxbury. The goals of this study are to provide an inclusive community engagement process, create an updated vision with the community, and establish an implementation plan that will lead to the issuance of RFPs for publicly-owned parcels in Dudley Square.
