MAYOR WALSH ANNOUNCES IMAGINE BOSTON 2030 WEEK TO ENGAGE RESIDENTS ON DRAFT STRATEGIC PLAN
Following recent launch of Expanding Opportunity, Imagine Boston will host place-based events to share information about the plan; engage residents
BOSTON - Monday, November 21, 2016 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced Imagine Boston 2030 week, a week-long series of events across the city that offer residents the opportunity to talk directly with city leaders and the Imagine Boston team about Expanding Opportunity, Imagine Boston 2030's draft plan of priority action areas and major initiatives. Last Thursday, Mayor Walsh released the draft plan, which highlights initiatives that will support a thriving Boston by expanding opportunity, supporting a dynamic economy, enhancing quality of life and preparing for climate change. Imagine Boston 2030 week begins on Wednesday, November 30. All events are free and open to the public, and registration is encouraged.

"Imagine Boston 2030 week is a great opportunity for those who want to share their vision for our city to get involved in these community events," said Mayor Walsh. "Our draft plan, Expanding Opportunity, is a living document that will be shaped over the coming months by the feedback we hear from residents. I encourage all residents to attend these events that showcase different areas of the city full with potential for growth and opportunity, ask questions and let us know how we can strengthen our final plan to create a thriving city for all Bostonians."

Over the last year, more than 12,000 people around the city have shared their vision for the future of Boston. That feedback, paired with the Mayor's priorities and research, has shaped "Expanding Opportunity," a draft strategic plan that identifies key actions and initiatives to create a healthy, thriving and innovative city in 2030.
