Applications for the Boylston Street Corridor Study Committee are also open. Anyone interested in serving on the committee can submit an application here.
Drawing on the community visioning process undertaken in 2018, the Boylston Street Corridor Study Committee will comprehensively examine opportunities for preservation of housing stock, redevelopment, and infrastructure improvements along the Boylston Street Corridor. The committee’s work will focus on the area of Brookline immediately surrounding Boylston Street (State Route 9) from Brington Road eastward to High Street, but may also include other adjacent areas as deemed appropriate.
