Summary & Goals
Guided by Imagine Boston 2030, PLAN: Mattapan is a City planning initiative that seeks to ensure that we preserve wisely, enhance equitably, and grow inclusively. Through these three principles of “preserve, enhance, and grow,” the City’s planning team will work with the community to create a comprehensive vision for the Mattapan planning area and guide future growth and investment.
PLAN: Mattapan will work closely with the community to review past planning efforts, and identify needs and opportunities for improvements which will support the long-term equitable growth and sustainability of the neighborhood. Focuses will include, though are not limited to, economic development (jobs and business) and the creation of transit-oriented market-rate and affordable housing growth while preserving the neighborhood’s character and unique attributes.

Most Recent Meeting: Open House Kick-Off | October 25, 2018
The planning initiative officially launched on October 25th, with our open house at the Mildred Avenue Community Center. The Mattapan community came together to meet the city's planning team, provide feedback on the study's focus area, and explore the three themes of Preserve, Enhance, and Grow. Your feedback at the open house is the first of many opportunities to engage in a conversation around planning in your neighborhood.
