"Mayor Marty Walsh has released a suggested reading list to help residents engage in the rest of citywide planning process Imagine Boston 2030," according to an article by Jen Kinney.

The Boston 2030 plan is the city's first comprehensive planning effort since 1965, so it's a big deal—making the mayor's recommended reading list also a big deal. The list includes "titles for both adults and children, titles that will be familiar to urbanists as well as Boston-specific histories and memoirs," writes Kinney.

In a separate article, Dialynn Dwyer also shares news of the mayoral reading list, explaining that mayoral staff made the suggestions, "based on how the content related to the work of the city’s master planning process." The Mayor's Office is also calling on Bostonians to vote for three additional titles to be added to the list.
