Housing Boston 2020: Mayor Menino's Housing Strategy

In his 2013 speech to the Boston Municipal Research Bureau, Mayor Menino announced Housing Boston 2020, an initiative that calls for the production of 30,000 new units to be built in the City of Boston by the year 2020.

From 1999 – 2012, Mayor Menino’s Leading the Way housing strategy created nearly 25,000 housing units in Boston – building 5,000 more units than had been built over the previous 30 years, and injecting more than $10 billion of investment into the local economy. 
Based on the success of the Leading the Way housing strategy, Mayor Menino convened the Housing Boston 2020 Advisory Panel to develop a new strategy for Boston’s changing demographics.  The plan is available below.
