MASCO's area planning and development department improves the quality of life and fosters a sense of community in the Longwood Medical and Academic area (LMA) for patients, residents, employees, students and visitors. We work with member institutions and state, city and community agencies to identify and solve common problems. Through collaboration and with a focus on building a sustainable and livable LMA of tomorrow, we plan and implement improvements in traffic and access including pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular access, long-range land use, urban design, public transportation services, infrastructure, sustainability and travel demand management Commuteworks. We also work to preserve and enhance open space and coordinate construction activities and city services.
