Description of Fellowship
Minjee worked at the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s Development Review team. In response to the Agency’s desire to improve its interface with the members of the community when potential new developments are being reviewed, she conducted a comparative analysis of the BRA’s public review procedure for reviewing private real estate developments with practices from Boston’s peer cities. As a result of her analysis, she suggested strategic ideas for restructuring the Agency’s development review system. The goal was to suggest a framework that can assure that the participation from the public becomes an integral part of the advancement of development proposals and a mutually beneficial consensus is reached at the end of the review process.
