Boston Mayor unveils economic vision for city

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh


Boston Mayor Martin Walsh has unveiled an economic plan for the city that includes a streamlined zoning process, the transformation of more than 300,000 square feet of city-owned property; and the creation of a new business incubator.

Walsh told about 500 members of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday that that he plans to build better relationships with businesses, communities and workers.

The plans include the creation of a zoning expert at the Boston Redevelopment Authority to take a comprehensive look at Boston’s building codes, and the addition of a chief digital officer to upgrade the city’s website and better integrate it with social media and city television.

Walsh says he also plans to create a business incubator in Dudley Square at the new city schools headquarters.
