Mayoral candidates say they would overhaul BRA

A majority of candidates for mayor say they would overhaul or dismantle the Boston Redevelopment Authority, raising the possibility of sweeping change at an agency that has shaped decades of development and become a prime lever of power for Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

One candidate, state Representative Martin Walsh, wants to abolish the BRA as a stand-alone agency, while several others prefer to divide its responsibilities among multiple bodies. Still others would keep the agency intact, while tinkering to make it more transparent.
