Who We Are

WE ARE URBAN PLANNERS, ARCHITECTS, INFRASTRUCTURE EXPERTS, WRITERS, ACTIVISTS, MOMS AND DADS, AND RESIDENTS— ALL STAKEHOLDERS IN EAST BOSTON’S FUTURE.

Initially formed as a spin-off from the successful No Eastie Casino group, EastBoston2020 came together last November to brainstorm alternatives to a casino at Suffolk Downs. What we ended up with was a list of principles, or values, by which any future development in East Boston — and specifically on the 161 acres at Suffolk Downs — may be measured. We are taking a proactive approach not to dictate to any private developer what they must build, but rather to begin a dialogue about how we might build the neighborhood we want — not simply react to bad proposed development.
