The Fairmount Indigo Planning Initiative is a two year study announced in February 2012.  Working in partnership with community stakeholders and neighborhood groups, the planning initiative will look at short and long term strategies for improving capital investment and job access along the MBTA Fairmount Indigo commuter line.

Connecting Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan and Hyde Park to South Station, the 9.2 mile MBTA commuter rail will impact over 100,000 people who live within a half mile of the line. 

The initiative is led by Boston Redevelopment Authorita (BRA), in conjunction with City departments and is the BRA's larges planning study to date.

For more information, call the BRA at 617.918.4434 or visit the Fairmount Indigo website:  http://fairmountindigoplanning.org
