Boston Redevelopment Authority adopts South End Renewal Plan
Emergency Tenants Council of Parcel 19, Inc. ("Emergency Tenant's Council") incorporated
ETC was organized and incorporated by local residents in the South End in opposition to urban renewal plans by the Boston Redevelopment authority (BRA). The neighborhood residents, primarily low to moderate income Hispanic people, strongly felt that the plans of the BRA would result in the destruction of the neighborhood and the displacement of residents.
The first object of the ETC was to win BRA's acceptance as a negotiating agent, which it was successful at. But when ETC sought acceptance as an appropriate sponsor developer for Parcel 19, BRA remained dubious and resistant.
