Neighborhood Development

We work to build strong, inclusive communities with access to stable and affordable housing for all.  Find out how we plan to do it.

We work with communities to improve Boston’s neighborhoods through investing public resources. Our main jobs are to create housing options, support tenants, foster homeownership, end homelessness, and manage the City’s real estate.  Want to take a deeper dive into our department structure and mission?

Plans, Reports, and Notices

In 2014, Mayor Walsh released Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030, a comprehensive housing plan designed to address the housing needs of Boston’s growing population. In 2018, a planned assessment found that Boston’s population was growing faster than expected, with 759,000 residents expected to live in Boston in 2030.
