Cambridge Street Planning Study


In fall of 2021, the City began Our Cambridge Street, a planning study for Cambridge Street between Inman Square and Lechmere Station. Cambridge Street was identified in Envision Cambridge as an area where sensitive and sustainable growth could provide opportunities for affordable housing; support local retail and service providers; enhance opportunities for walking and bicycling; and improve the public realm, among other community interests and benefits.

The City will work with the community to craft a shared vision for Cambridge Street based on an inclusive and transparent engagement process. Stay tuned for upcoming meetings and events.
