Councilor Arroyo: "Planning needs to be brought to the people"

The Allston-Brighton TAB reported on the Allston-Brighton Community Development Corporation's State of the Neighborhood event on Wednesday night:
Residents and officials decried what they have said is a development process lacking in transparency and community collaboration. Many were sharply critical of the Boston Redevelopment Authority and its blanket control over development, and calls for a separate planning office were frequent.

“Planning needs to be brought to the people,” said [City Councilor Felix] Arroyo, who is co-sponsoring legislation in City Council to establish a city planning department independent of the BRA.
