PLAN: Dudley Square

Past Events


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 will revisit the visions presented in both the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan and Dudley Vision to evaluate if they still align with current community goals. Using these past plans as a framework, PLAN: Dudley Square 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 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.

Project Review Committee

Interested in joining a Project Review Committee (PRC)?

As part of the review process project review committees (PRCs) will be formed to evaluate the developer submissions based on the criteria developed through the PLAN: Dudley Square process and outlined in the Request for Proposals (RFPs). After proposals are selected, PRCs continue to monitor project progress from tentative designation until the buildings are ready to open.

Nominations for Department of Neighborhood Development Parcels in Dudley Square are now closed but we are currently accepting nominations on a rolling basis for residents to serve on the PRCs for the BPDA parcels and Master Plan within Dudley Square. If you are interested in serving on the PRC, or would like to nominate someone to the PRC, please fill out this nomination form as completely as possible.
