MEMORANDUM

TO: BOSTON REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
FROM: ROBERT J. RYAN/DIRECTOR

SUBJECT: CAMPUS HIGH URBAN RENEWAL AREA, PROJECT NO. MASS. R-129

PROCLAIMER OF MINOR MODIFICATION OF THE URBAN RENEWAL PLAN
PARCELS X-30, X-31 , X-32, X-33 and X-34 CONCERNING BOTH THE

SOUTH END AND CAMPUS HIGH URBAN RENEWAL AREAS

SUMMARY: This memorandum requests that the Authority
(1) adopt a minor modification of the Campus
High and South End Urban Renewal Areas with
respect to the creation of Parcels X-30, X-31, X-32,
X-33 and X-34 (2) authorize the Director to proclaim
this minor modification by certificate.

On June 21, 1978, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts conveyed
to the Boston Redevelopment Authority several parcels of land adjacent
to the new Crosstown Street. This land was to be used for housing
constructed with Federal or State subsidies for low and moderate
income units.

The Authority, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the
Lower Roxbury Development Corporation have been negotiating regarding
the development of this land. The Commonwealth has agreed to construct
the streets necessary for housing development in accordance with the
plan submitted by LRDC.

The re-alignment of the Crosstown Street and the construction
of several new local streets to service the housing development re-
quires the creation of several new parcels designated X-30, X-31, X-32,
X-33 and X-34. These parcels will be added to Map No. 3 "Disposition
Parcels" as shown on the attached map. The permitted land use will be
residential with all other controls and requirements subject to
"Authori ty Approval " .

The boundary line between the South End Urban Renewal Area
and the Campus High Urban Renewal Area was drawn prior to the re-
alignment of the Crosstown Street. The altered right-of-way for the
Crosstown Street results in a small section of these parcels being in
the South End Urban Renewal Area. It will be necessary, therefore,
to also create these parcels in the South End and Campus High Urban
Renewal Areas.

It is therefore recommended that Parcels X-30, X-31, X-32,
X-33 and X-34 be created for residential use in the Campus High and
South End Urban Renewal Areas.



->>



It is requested that the Director be authorized to
proclaim by certificate this minor modification.

The proposed modification is minor and does not sub-
stantially or materially alter or change the Plan. This modification
may, therefore, be effected by vote of the Authority, pursuant to
Section 1201 of the Campus High Urban Renewal Plan and the South End
Urban Renewal Plan.

Appropriate Resolutions are attached.
