Pint With a Planner: A BPDA Community Engagement Mixer

Meet the staff of Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) and learn how to get involved with their work!

Ever seen a new building going up in your neighborhood, and wondered "how did that get there?" Meet the people behind the magic of Boston's biggest housing boom ever. Staff members of the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) will join the SPARK Boston Council in South Boston for the first (of hopefully many) mixers. Learn more about the BPDA's many functions as a quasi-government agency in a low pressure environment with snacks and friends. We call it: Pint with a Planner!

The BPDA will be providing the food courtesy of Roza Lyons, but we need you to bring your questions about community engagement, programming, and Boston's housing market. There's no formal agenda. This is an opportunity to share an evening (and should you choose to purchase one, a drink) with the City's planning, workforce development, and real estate team, as well as other young professionals from the neighborhood. We can't wait to chat with you, Southie!
