Project Goals

Project Goals: Promote business and mixed-use housing developments through partnerships with the Office of Economic Development (OED through Main Streets) to identify business opportunities for aspiring business owners and the community’s preferences for new commercial and mixed-use businesses on COB parcels.

This effort will include working with ReStore Boston to provide technical assistance and storefront improvement funding for existing businesses.

WORK, Create local jobs, so that neighborhood residents can work where they live.

LIVE, Create opportunities for business owners to live close to their businesses and employees to work close to home affordably.

PLAY, Attract new businesses and services that the neighborhood has been looking for. Connect developers with aspiring and existing business owners.

Leverage DND’s funding, and experience with various types of housing, to assist with financing options for mixed-use (commercial and residential) projects.

Partner with the BPDA to implement the outcomes of the ongoing PLAN: Mattapan initiative. Align project goals for disposition with the values that have been expressed by the community and are represented in the PLAN: Mattapan vision statement.
