CAMPUS HIGH SCHOOL



Questions and Answers



1. Why has this site been chosen for a high school?

More than 20 sites were considered. This one was chosen
because it is centrally located and therefore exceptionally
accessible to all the children of Boston and because the
deteriorating conditions of the site provide a major
opportunity for development.



2. Why is so much land needed for the school?

The high school that is proposed is of a size and concept
that does not exist in Boston today. It will be a campus
type of school, accommodating 5500 students, with many
specialized f acMities . Even if accepted standards for
such a school are modified because of the urban setting,
a large area - at least k^> acres - is required.



3. Will the facilities of the school be available to the adjacent community?

Yes. The School Committee has a firm policy of making all
recreational facilities, such as playing fields and tennis
courts, available when they are not in use by the schools.



h. Are other uses planned in the area to be acquired for the high school?
Is it possible to build housing or other neighborhood facilities'?

Any other uses in this area will be very limited, but
during the planning period the BRA will study other
possibilities for any land that may be available and not
required for the school.



Questions and Answers continued



Is all the property within the project boundary going to be taken
eventually?

No. The BRA is now seeking approvals to acquire only the land
clearly designated as an acquisition area. During the
time that work is going on in this area, study of the
remainder of the project will take place and an urban
renewal plan will be formulated. The plan may call
for some additional clearance, but there will also be
extensive rehabilitation of existing buildings.
Before any further action can be taken, the same
procedure of hearings and approvals must be followed.



6. Why does the project include more than the high school site?
There are three reasons:

a. To tie in to the South End and Washington
Park projects.

b. Because the following public facilities
are scheduled to be abandoned and their
locations made available for redevelopment-
Roxbury Court House, Roxbury Boys' Club, the
Dudley and Dillaway Schools, and possibly
the Post Office.

c. To provide a road improvement connecting
Shawmut Avenue and Washington Street.



7. What is the schedule for the early land program and the high school?

The Authority expects to have the early land program
approved by the City Council, the State, and the
Federal government by the end of the year. Relocation
interviews and appraisals of property will begin
immediately thereafter. The purchase of property
and the relocation of households and busi nesses
should be under way by spring. Buildings will be
cleared and the ground prepared for construction
during 1967 and 1968. Construction of the school
will begin during 1968, with the first classes
scheduled for September, 1970.



Questions and Answers continued



8. Where will families move to?

There will be plenty of low- and moderate-income housing
available. Approximately 700 units of moderate- income housing
in Washington Park will be ready for occupancy.

Furthermore, people displaced by government action have
priority in publicly aided housing, including public
housing units that become available as a result of
normal turnover, newly built housing units for the elderly,
and private apartments that are leased by the Housing
Authority.



9. Why are the industries on Simmons Street not being taken?

No final determination about the industries has been
made. They will remain for the immediate future
because 750 people are employed there and because
finding suitable replacement sites is very difficult
new industrial buildings require three or four times
as much space as older ones, and in Boston vacant
land for any purpose is very hard to find.



10, When will the highways be constructed?

The Department of Public Works intends to begin construction
during 1967 of the portions of the Inner Belt and Southwest
Expressway that abut the project and to have them ready to
open in 1971. The Inner Belt is expected to be completed
somewhat sooner than the Southwest E:rpressway



11. Are Dudley Square and the elevated on Washington Street going to be
replaced?

The MBTA intends to build tracks alongside the Southwest
Expressway to replace the Washington Street line, so that
the line may be demolished as early as 1971. Dudley
Station will be replaced by a new terminal in the vicinity
of Roxbury Crossing.



Questions and Answers continued



12. Will the BRA make the takings for the highways?



No. The Massachusetts Department of Public Works -will
acquire the necessary property. However, the BRA
expects to provide relocation services under contract to
the D.P.W.



13. How does the BRA determine the value of property to be acquired?

The Authority contracts for appraisals of each
property by two independent professional appraisers
and sets a price that is consistent with the
appraisals. Prices are then approved by the Federal
government .

A negotiator representing the Authority discusses
the purchase with the owner. If the owner accepts the
price offered, the Authority purchases the property
promptly. If the owner does not accept the price, the
Authority pays him a minimum of 75 percent of the
price it has offered (a pro tanto payment) and takes
possession of the property, leaving the owner the right
to ask the court to set a different price.

After acquiring the property in either way, the Authority
must give occupants of the property 120 days' notice
to vacate.



STATEMENT BY EDWARD J. LOGUE, JULY 19, 196S, ON BOSTON REDEVELOPMENT
AUTHORITY PUBLIC HEARING TO BE HELD MONDAY, JULY 25, 196S



"Monday night, July 25, at the Timilty Junior High School,
there will be a public hearing by the Boston Redevelopment Authority
on plans to take the first steps to create the long-sought, new
Campus High School.

"Four years ago in a report on the Boston school program,"
the Campus High School was recommended as top priority in the re-
building of the Boston School System. This recommendation has long
been supported, and action has been urgently requested by a wide
| variety of civic groups, including groups interested in education
and civil rights. One of the key features of the school is that
it is insured that the new Campus High will be a racially balanced
secondary school. Monday night's hearing climaxes a four-year
search for a site which could be approved by the City Council, the
School Committee, and the Redevelopment Authority. More than twenty
sites were studied by the Redevelopment Authority and reported on
to the school committee. Finally, last winter ; -ths -School Committee,
by a majority vote, spoke in favor of the so-called Madison Park Site.
" Although the area today is one of the most heavily blighted
in the City of Boston, an area where many houses lizvc been torn down
over the last ten years, it is very centrally located and can provide
a very well located site which can attract pupils from all over the
school system. In addition, it is expected to add great strength
to the Roxbury, Dorchester, and South End neighborhoods, and wide-



spread support is expected at the hearing from representatives from
these communities. Less than four-hundred families are located
in the early land acquisition area part of the site. With the
several hundred new homes either, under construction or to be placed
under construction in the Washington Park and South End areas,
satisfactory relocation will be readily possible, according to a
Boston Redevelopment Authority spokesman. The rent supplementation
program and the lease housing program available for the first time
in Boston has been approved for a large number of units and will be
made available to families being relocated from the Madison Park Area.

"If approved by the Board of the Boston Redevelopment
Authority, the measure will then go, after the hearing, to the
City Council which v/ill be expected to hold a public hearing. Pinal
approval will come only after favorable action from the City Council,
the Mayor, the Board of the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the
state and federal government."
