The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) "plans Boston's future while respecting its past.” Working with the private sector, the BRA helps guide physical, social, and economic change in Boston's neighborhoods and its downtown. The agency’s homepage features an interactive map of the city that allows visitors to view current and future development projects. Additionally, users can search via parcel ID or address. In the Neighborhoods area, visitors can browse around the officially identified list of neighborhoods to see what's on the docket. Clicking on Business Development is a great way to learn about long-term business opportunities, including the Boston Business Hub and various initiatives designed to encourage the growth of certain value added businesses. Moving on, the Research & Maps area contains rich data sets, interactive maps, and a raft of research papers, including "Boston in Context: Neighborhoods" and "Grocery Stores in Boston.”
