WRMS embraces a four-prong approach to supporting a healthy, active and vibrant district:  enhancing the physical appearance of the district; improving its economic vitality through supporting existing businesses and attracting new ones; marketing the district to attract new and repeat visitors to support local businesses; and promoting community involvement and events among its business and residential member base.

Envisioning our district’s future

Months of preparation and community outreach culminated in a community visioning exercise in June 2016. Over 700 people responded to an online survey and 100 people came out to a half-day workshop to provide input for what they would like to see within the West Roxbury Business District in the coming years. The visioning process identified key priorities for WRMS’s work in the coming years.
