DND Notices & Disclosures

PDR regularly posts a number of notices and disclosures related to the City's use of program funding.

Department of Neighborhood Development Employee Participation Plan

The Department of Neighborhood Development has recently established a review process by which the City and HUD may evaluate an individual request from a DND employee to participate in a homeowner and homebuyer program. If the request, presenting no conflict of interest on the part of the requestor, is approved by both entities, an employee may participate in that program.

A list of approved DND Employee Participation Requests will be updated every 12 months and posted to the website. A copy of this list will be filed at the office of the City Clerk, and also made available for public review at DND’s Bid Counter, located at 26 Court St, 10th Floor, Boston MA, 02108.

DND limits employee participation to 5% of the available "slots" in a given program to ensure access by the general public is not significantly limited. 

For more information, please contact Robert Gehret, Deputy Director for Policy Development & Research at 617.635.0242 or bgehret.dnd@cityofboston.gov

  • Boston Public Improvement Commission Hearings 9-18-14
    The Boston Public Improvement Commission (PIC) is the owner and regulator of the City's rights of way. The PIC plays an integral role in the City's development and permitting process. From the restaurant that wants to add a seasonal cafe on the public sidewalk, to the developer who wants to construct an underground parking garage for a new housing development, or the homeowner who wants to add an architectural feature to a house that juts into the public space, each must seek approval from the PIC to have its private venture occupy public space, either permanently or on a licensed basis.
