The Boston Redevelopment Authority is speeding up its deliberations to act on building proposals by developers and others seeking approvals in the waning days of Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s administration.
The BRA, which reviews all major development projects, has started increasing the frequency of its board meetings to act on submissions calling for everything from tax relief, to long-term development plans for universities, to construction of towering residential buildings.
Typically, the authority’s board meets once a month, but it held two meetings in September and is planning to hold two in October. The election to determine Menino’s successor is scheduled for Nov. 5, and both candidates, Martin Walsh and John Connolly, are urging the BRA to delay approvals until community concerns are addressed.
