Collaboration has been a primary activity and has included not only government entities and dozens of non-profit partners but also citizen participation that emphasized the insights and perspectives of people with disabilities, children and adolescents, elders.

Education and training have also been constants with presentation and occasional public forums such as the Streets Fit for People event in 2001 and the Cities Fit for People international forum in November 2003.

The project expanded to include The Fenway and the Longwood Medical Area in 2002, the hubs of recreation and culture and of medical services in Boston. Today, the project team also addresses public transportation through direct collaboration with regional agencies. Project Coordinators, Chris Hart and Kristin Schneider, now review all large planning and parcel development proposals throughout the City of Boston.
