Board adopts Hyde Park Neighborhood Strategic Plan

Aug 17, 2011

The Board adopted the Hyde Park Neighborhood Strategic Plan which sets forth a comprehensive vision for the Hyde Park neighborhood.  Adoption of the neighborhood plan is the culmination of a two year planning process by Boston Redevelopment Authority staff and a team of planning consultants led by Crosby | Schlessinger | Smallridge, in collaboration with a neighborhood Advisory Group and the offices of Councilor Robert Consalvo and the Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services.  Over the course of nineteen public meetings, a strategic plan was crafted to provide a vision for neighborhood land use, zoning, development, historic preservation, open space, transportation and sustainability. In the fall of 2011, a new neighborhood zoning article for Hyde Park will be prepared by the BRA which will reflect recommendations from the neighborhood plan.  Specific focus areas of the plan include targeted recommendations for strengthening the Logan and Cleary Square commercial district, as well as tools for leveraging the natural assets of the neighborhood through the introduction of open space zoning protections and Boston's first Riverfront Protection Overlay District.
