The Fields Corner plan will document a public investment and growth-focused vision for the area around the central businesses and train and bus stops. This plan is part of Squares + Streets, a new planning and zoning initiative that will focus on housing, public space, arts and culture, small businesses, and transportation in neighborhood centers and along main streets. The links below include more information about the project, what we've heard so far, and ways to get involved and impact the plan.

The people who live, work, shop, and visit this commercial area will have the opportunity to participate in the development of the plan. Please also explore the BPDA-hosted events under events on this page or in month or list view on our calendar. The Fields Corner team will be at many community events while we work together on the plan.

Fields Corner, Why Here

Fields Corner, Impact the Plan

About Squares + Streets

The BPDA, in partnership with several City of Boston departments, is launching a series of Squares + Streets plans. One of the initial four locations is Fields Corner, a key commercial district in the Dorchester neighborhood.

Squares + Streets focuses on small geographic areas around the City of Boston, creates plans that reflect community needs, and provides implementable action steps that respond to those needs within a 5–10 year period.

The Squares + Streets process looks to develop a plan and implementable recommendations within 6–9 months to ensure that critical needs identified by the community during the engagement process have a well-understood planning-to-implementation pipeline. This timeline also reflects the urgency of the larger housing crisis affecting many areas in Boston and a desire to reduce the barriers to participation inherent in long engagement processes.

To learn more about Squares + Streets, please see the project homepage.
