The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) today announced that the public will be invited to tour the agency's model room beginning Tuesday, January 17.

The BPDA's model room houses a 1:40 inch scale, physical, basswood model of Boston's downtown and portions of Beacon Hill, the North End, Charlestown, Back Bay and the South Boston Waterfront.

The model allows the City's urban design and planning staff to study planning and development options within this area. The model was originally built in the 1980's and is kept current by BPDA staff.

Tours will be held every Tuesday between 10 a.m. and noon at the Boston Planning & Development Agency on the 9th floor of Boston's City Hall.

Tours will be led by BPDA urban design and planning staff and will last approximately 30 minutes. Reservations will be required by signing up at bit.ly/bpda-model.

The BPDA will continue to provide tours to students, international delegations, and any other groups who request them outside these times.
