Boston Fairmount Corridor Vision

Tags for this image:
A collaborative planning team formed by four community development corporations created a vision for new, urban villages on vacant, underutilized and brownfield sites along Boston’s most underused commuter rail line -- a 10-mile transportation corridor stretching from downtown to the suburbs. The neighborhoods affected by the plan have some of the city’s highest poverty levels, the greatest dependence on public transportation, and the worst access to transit service. The plan calls for an enhanced rail line with new stations that will allow for higher-density affordable housing, better access to jobs, and for a greenway linking parks and recreational destinations.
