On May 2, 2014 the CRA completed a draft Strategic Plan for public review and comment. The document provides a framework for the CRA moving forward, beginning with a refined mission and operating principles. The Strategic Plan outlines the context of redevelopment work in Cambridge and the Commonwealth and then provides a set of strategic objectives for its programmatic priorities and internal operations.
