BPDA board vote on Plan: JP/Rox delayed

The Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) board vote was delayed until March 2 after the board’s original meeting on Feb. 9 was canceled because of weather.

The BPDA board will review the plan and will likely approve it. The BPDA staff only submits material to the board when they consider the plans ready for approval. This reporter has never seen a project or plan voted down by the board. The plan would still need to be approved by the Zoning Commission before it is officially accepted.

Plan: JP/Rox is the long-awaited planning study for the Columbus Avenue and Washington Street corridor, from Jackson Square to Egleston Square to Forest Hills. The planning study was launched more than a year and a half ago, and will eventually create new zoning for the area. The plan has undergone several revisions.
