Robert Barton of Greenovate recaps some of the feedback received at the second open house for Climate Ready South Boston, an extensive resilience study by Arcadis, Halvorson Design, the Woods Hole Group, and CivicMoxie for the City of Boston to develop strategies to prepare for the short and long-term impacts of climate change and stormwater surges.
Held at the Boston Children's Museum, the event drew more than 200 attendees, who were updated on the progress of the study and provided feedback on proposed neighborhood climate resilience options developed by the team.
