Intervale Backyards Program
Small-scale residential infill development
The Interval Backyards were transferred to neighboring residents as part of the BRA Abutter Program that was established in 2004. The program makes citywide parcels available to adjacent property owners for disposition and reuse as open space and parking. The primary goal of the BRA Abutter Program is to improve the general appearance of Boston’s neighborhoods by encouraging private maintenance of land that is not suitable for development.
