Depending on your ideas about urban planning and economics, the flurry of construction scheduled for South Huntington over the next few years is either a boon or a menace.
Despite plans on the board for two residential projects of nearly 200 units each, the city told the Boston Globe it won't create a "master plan" to guide the mushrooming development.
Developments still have to go through the city's red tape and some amount of neighborhood process.
Some residents say the developments are way too big and not in keeping with the feel of Jamaica Plain. Some say the developments will price out lower-income renters.
Others welcome the new developments because they will bring more people to JP — people who will need to shop at local businesses. There's also the idea that urban housing, especially along mass transit lines, should be dense.
