Blue Hill Avenue: Call for ideas

First things first: We want to hear from you. 

Blue Hill Avenue is a vital piece of many of the City's puzzles. This avenue houses community organizations of education, worship, and recreation. It is a commercial corridor home to many proud, minority-owned businesses. The corridor provides access to and from the City's major employment centers for Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan residents. It also supports the highest bus ridership in the entire MBTA system.

On this page, you can share your ideas and concerns. We want to hear your thoughts on transportation, public space, and safety throughout the corridor. Whether your trips are made on foot, by bike, by car, or on a bus, we want to hear from you. Please take our three-minute survey. You can also join our email list to stay updated on meetings, progress reports, and presentations.

Public Space

Public space generally refers to places that are open and accessible to all. Several examples include sidewalks, plazas, parks, playgrounds, and seating areas. Let us know how you feel about Blue Hill Avenue's public spaces today, and what you would like to see in the future.

Vision Zero

Your safety is important to us. We know that vehicle speeds along Blue Hill Avenue are high. But, we need your help to paint a deeper picture. How does Blue Hill Avenue feel as a pedestrian? Have you experienced a safety issue while waiting for the bus or cycling? Please share your experiences.
