Mayor Marty Walsh on Wednesday announced the launch of a new Boston development process — the "first citywide planning process in 50 years," his office said in a press release.
“In 1965 people were looking for the confidence to believe that the city’s decline had ended," Walsh said in the release. "Today we’re a thriving, healthy, and innovative city. Now is our chance to set the course for the next generation. I’m inviting you to join us in imagining the Boston of 2030. From economic development to open space, from education to equality, your voice is the key to our success.”
With the launch of Imagine Boston 2030, the city will begin two years of public hearings, and Walsh's office also introduced a website — imagine.boston.gov — to initiate the development conversation.
2030 will mark Boston's 400th birthday.
