As a precursor to updating the neighborhood’s 1950’s era zoning, the BRA initiated the Roslindale and Hyde Park Neighborhood Strategic Plans.
The Plans encompass recommendations for land use, housing, open space, the public realm, institutional growth, transportation, and urban design. Particular attention was given to opportunities for transit oriented development and improvements to the pedestrian environment around the neighborhoods’ commercial centers and commuter rail stations. The Master Plans and zoning recommendations were adopted by the BRA Board. CSS worked closely with the Roslindale and Hyde Park Advisory Groups to develop the neighborhood plan.
