Residents who were unable to attend the Jan. 18th public meeting about Plan: JP/Rox can still provide public comments through Jan. 25th.
More than 180 people attended the Jan. 18th meeting to learn more about the final draft of Plan: JP/Rox.
PLAN: JP/ROX is a study to actively engage the community to create a new vision and plan for the area between Forest Hills, Egleston Square and Jackson Square, generally bounded by Washington Street, Columbus Avenue, and Amory Street, according to the BPDA’s website. The plan encompasses approximately 250 acres and more than 6,000 residents.
Public meetings in several different formats began in July 2015 with the ultimate goal to create a plan to provide recommendations that will be adopted in a subsequent zoning phase that will involve the community. The PLAN will provide recommendations and strategies regarding affordable housing, jobs, businesses, guidelines for urban design, suggestions for transportation improvements, open space, sustainability and the public realm.
