Planning, Development, and Transportation

We review the planning behind the development of Boston. We work on everything from business and residential projects to historical preservation programs.

We make sure developers have stable financing and follow the City’s rules. We reach out to the community so residents have their voices heard. In our work, we promote both small and large businesses.

We also look after the care and management of public land and buildings in the City, except for parks.
