Fairmount Corridor Sustainable Neighborhood Plan

Student and faculty in HCED are working with community-based organizations in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood to help implement sustainable and equitable planning measures as part of the Fairmount Corridor Initiative - an innovative inner-city smart growth/transit-oriented development program featuring new MBTA transit service in a low-income, minority district.

Through studio projects and other course work, HCED students are developing strategies to connect housing, transportation, and energy policy that will improve the quality of life and enhance economic opportunity without causing displacement of existing households.

A sample of student work on the Fairmount Corridor is available at Fairmount Corridor.
