Historical note

The Boston Redevelopment Authority, established in accordance with General Laws, Chapter 121B, has the sole responsibility for urban renewal activities in the City of Boston. The Authority was organized in September, 1957 and received its certificate of organization from the Secretary of the Commonwealth on October 4, 1957. Chapter 652 of the Acts of 1960 abolished the City Planning Board and transferred its powers to the BRA. The functions, duties, and responsibilities for general city planning and development were merged into one agency. In 1993, Mayor Thomas M. Menino merged the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the Economic Development and Industrial Corporation into a single citywide development agency.
