“The final RFP proposals are due next Monday, July 20th. Some of my focus this week has shifted to how to present to the public the relationship between the Imagine Boston 2030 Citywide Plan, which has not officially started, and other city as well as BRA planning initiatives that are already underway. In discussing that strategy with others in the BRA Planning Department who are working on SPA’s (Strategic Planning Areas), I learned that the public should understand that the SPA’s and other current city initiatives will eventually feed into the Imagine Boston 2030 Citywide Plan. I was able to help by creating an initial graphic that could demonstrate this relationship, and illustrate how existing planning processes would lead into the new Citywide Plan. The graphic conveys the message that the efforts will not stop. Rather, all the planning efforts will build upon each other.”
