    Free and open to the public

The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) and the Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) invite emerging professionals in the architecture, engineering, and construction community unfamiliar with the City of Boston’s development review to this bootcamp session.

This bootcamp will be an opportunity to ask questions of BPDA staff and better understand the elements one must account for when initiating development projects in Boston.
