The Cecil Group is leading a comprehensive community-based corridor-wide planning process for the Fairmount Indigo corridor in Boston. The Fairmount Indigo Corridor is a 9.2 mile transit corridor currently serviced by the MBTA commuter rail. The planning initiative is a two-tiered process consisting of corridor-wide planning and station area neighborhood planning. At the corridor scale, the consultant team is preparing economic development and branding strategies for the corridor that will reposition the underserved communities along its path within the larger Boston metropolitan context. At the station area scale, the consultant team is preparing a more detailed analysis of potential public realm, development, housing and open space improvements that can better connect the neighborhoods to the rail corridor and other resources within Boston. At the foundation of this planning process is extensive community outreach and participation within the corridor neighborhoods with advisory groups, community meetings, visioning sessions, and stakeholder involvement. This effort is the City’s largest planning study to date and will impact 190,000 residents, approximately 1/3 of the population, who live within a half-mile of the commuter rail corridor.
