The CRA works in the public trust to bring a human dimension to development, improving the quality of life for residents, businesses, employees, and visitors. Our goal is to balance economic vibrancy, housing, and open space, to create sustainable communities through new and revitalized development. We are committed to implementing imaginative, creative initiatives to achieve social equity and a balanced economic ecosystem. The CRA works on projects throughout Cambridge, often in partnership with the City or with other organizations.
We know that diversity, equity, and inclusion make us stronger as individuals, organizations, and a society. Our work requires understanding of the problems that cities face and the impact of our interventions on residents and communities. The CRA provides a flexible, supportive, and family-friendly work environment. We will accommodate individuals with disabilities to perform essential functions.
In 2014, the CRA developed a new mission, a guiding set of operating principles, and initiated a series of new redevelopment activities in Cambridge. As a result, the CRA launched the Foundry Redevelopment Demonstration Project, amended the Kendall Square Urban Renewal Plan (KSURP), initiated the Forward Fund nonprofit grant program, initiated multiple park and streetscape improvement projects and purchased and renovated the nonprofit office building at 99 Bishop Allen Drive, among other efforts. In 2021, the CRA is re-engaged in a strategic planning effort with the goal of enhancing its internal capacity and expanding its community investments. The Project Manager will play a vital role, along with other CRA staff, in carrying out the goals of the new Strategic Plan.
