Boston Planning and Development Agency

In partnership with communities, the BPDA plans Boston’s future while respecting its past. We prepare our residents for new opportunities through training, human services and job creation. The BPDA guides physical, social, and economic change in Boston’s neighborhoods and its downtown to shape a more prosperous, comfortable, and beautiful city for all.*The Boston Planning and Development Agency's operating budget is not funded by the City’s general fund but is included in the City’s capital plan.

Brian Golden, Director
The Boston Planning & Development Agency, functioning as Boston’s central planning organization, will continue providing in-house planning expertise and will also help leverage the external resources necessary to shape Boston’s future. The Capital Plan will support opportunities in commercial districts such as Dorchester avenue and Northern Avenue.
