JP/Rox Transportation Action Plan Meeting on Sept. 19th

There will be a public meeting on Sept. 19th to discuss the Washington Street and Columbus Avenue corridor as it relates to the upcoming Transportation Action Plan that builds on Go Boston 2030 and PLAN: JP/ROX.

This is a kickoff meeting during which the scope of the project, an overall update and summary of the transportation component of the PLAN: JP/ROX, will be discussed. There will be future meetings, too.

PLAN: JP/ROX is a set of guidelines that will direct future development and improvements to the corridor that connects Jamaica Plain and Roxbury. The study area encompasses Forest Hills, Egleston Square and Jackson Square, generally bounded by Washington Street, Columbus Avenue and Amory Street. The plan is aimed at addressing housing, jobs and business, transportation, land use and urban design.

Some work that has been done during the last few months in the study area will also be presented.

The project will be lead by the Boston Transportation Department (BTD) while working with the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA), Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS) and other departments. Staff from these departments are scheduled to attend this first meeting.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions at the meeting, said a BTD employee to Jamaica Plain News.

This meeting will be on Tuesday, September 19th, from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Brookside Health Center, Kennedy Conference Room (3297 Washington St., Jamaica Plain).
