Current Town Gown Reports

Among the recommendations of the 1991 Mayor's Report on University-Community Relationships is that the Planning Board conduct an "annual joint review of university and community needs and plans." This review takes two forms.

Every year each school that is a signatory to the report first submits a Town Gown Annual Report to the Community Development Department; this report is followed by a presentation to the Cambridge Planning Board, usually in early February of the following year. In recent times, formal reporting has frequently been supplemented by updates from the schools at Planning Board meetings, whenever plans for growth and change develop mid-year, and as a result, there is a need for informing the community before the formal annual review.
