“We believe East Boston is in a strategic position to help lead the city in forward-thinking and fiscally responsible development…”

East Boston is clearly poised for significant growth. For the sake of our delicate ecosystem of families, businesses, nonprofits and green spaces, we must take great care in seeing that it grows in smart, healthy ways.
The aim of this document is to outline five essential principles by which significant future development proposals in East Boston – and Suffolk Downs in particular – might be measured.  Our goal is not to offer specific development scenarios, but to create a principled development framework.
