In 2015, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning conducted a study of the evolving urban development in Brighton’s business district and its impact. The report includes a summary of existing conditions as well as community input resulting in planning recommendations. At the core of the report is the potential to promote Brighton as Boston’s Health and Wellness hub, which could both engage existing businesses and attract new ones and provide ample activities that serve residents and attract visitors.
Health and wellness builds on Brighton’s existing benefits in having anchor institutions with related missions such as the Oak Square YMCA, New Balance, and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, to tie together the business district from end to end in meaningful way for the residents and businesses.
Through physical neighborhood improvements, health related programming, and targeted strategies to attract new businesses, Brighton Main Streets can contribute toward making Brighton a healthier and happier place for people of all ages, to live, work, relax and do business.
