This PLAN: Mattapan workshop will be a continuation of the August presentation. The planning team will provide a brief refresher of our August meeting and then move into small group activities. There will be an opportunity for large group questions and answers at the end of the meeting.

The purpose of this meeting is to:

  • Share and discuss existing building heights, allowable zoning, and potential future heights
  • Further the development of urban design guidelines and zoning for Mattapan’s corridors

We will incorporate recommendations from other City and State Agencies that are also conducting and implementing various planning efforts in and across Mattapan. We encourage attendees to revisit the toolkits produced for previous workshops that include a brief overview of Article 60 (Mattapan’s zoning code) and Article 80 Project Review, which can be found on our website.
