We are creating an updated version of the Davis Square Neighborhood Plan and need your input!

Last summer, we began discussions on the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Davis Square plan. We also continued to hear feedback from the public, including about community concerns we know we could address better. Over the past two years, we also saw the public realm change and adapt to the needs of residents and businesses throughout the different stages of the pandemic. We want to expand on what we have learned over this time to provide an improved plan for quality civic spaces, outdoor dining and vending, pedestrian and bike safety, expanded wayfinding opportunities, and public realm maintenance that will support.

We are now rethinking our plan elements and recommendations related to street design, open streets, and placemaking features that will be necessary to support our small business owners and use our public realm more effectively. To that end, we have narrowed the focus of the Davis Square Plan to the core business area and changed the title from Davis Square Neighborhood Plan to Davis Square Commercial Area Plan. We are excited about this renewed initiative and eager for our community to be part of it. More updates will be shared soon!
