304 Stewart Street et al. v. Boston Redevelopment Authority et al.

One of the few cases which directly addresses the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s (BRA’s) role in connection with the review and adoption of a special zoning amendment known as a Planned Development Area (PDA).  The Land Court dismissed the plaintiffs’ claims against the BRA because it found nothing in § 10A of the Boston Zoning Enabling Act which either expressly or impliedly authorizes aggrieved persons to appeal the BRA’s action with respect to recommending proposed amendments to the zoning code.  The Land Court held “it is only the Boston Zoning Commission’s actions which are subject to de novo judicial review under § 10A.”
