2013 Boston Urban Symposium Final Presentation

in City Planning & Urban Affairs, Student Presentations
May 8th, 2013

You are cordially invited to attend the final presentation of the 2013 Boston Urban Symposium, the capstone course for the Boston University graduate students in city planning and urban affairs. This is a milestone event for students and the MCP/MUA programs as it represents the culmination of years of studies in the fields of planning and urban affairs.

This year, the graduating class took on a challenging project:  the development of an Advisory Plan to the General Management Plan (GMP) of the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership (BHIP).  The Symposium class took on the role of consultant for the BHIP, which is about to celebrate a series of milestones and needs to update and reinvigorate its constitutional planning document, the GMP.

The class analyzed the GMP through the lens of key social, economic and technological changes and trends that have emerged over the first ten years of the Plan’s existence. The Advisory Plan is a unique planning document that provides valuable assessments of the BHI, policy recommendations and strategic action items for consideration.
