The topic is "Moving Around Study" for the January workshop, which will focus on how the Washington Street area for JP and Roxbury connected with other places.

Workshop focus points led by the Boston Redevelopment Authority, include asking how do people travel the study area and what is the experience like getting to the study area of Washington Street. How can these experiences be more pleasant? What are places you want to be be connected to?
