At the heart of the city and home to the region’s busiest bus station, Dudley Square is a prime corridor for job creation, commerce, and transit-oriented development.
PLAN: Dudley Square Roxbury will revisit the visions presented in both the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan and Dudley Vision to see if they still align with current community goals.
Using these past plans as a framework, PLAN: Dudley Square Roxbury will offer the City and community the opportunity to think strategically about the types of uses, public realm, and scale of development that are best suited for the future of the area.
This planning effort will create a road map for a comprehensive development opportunity plan and streamlined implementation plan for publicly-owned (City/BRA/State) and vacant privately-owned parcels. From this Dudley Square focus, we will work with the community to further expand the discussion to the Roxbury neighborhood at large.
Through open dialogue and community involvement, this study will be used to develop an implementation plan to mobilize development on publicly-owned parcels.
