Organized by East Boston’s Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH) and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) of Boston/New England, the East Boston Flood Prevention Design Workshop brought together teams of experts and the community to brainstorm ways to protect East Boston from sea level rise and the effects of climate change.
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.
On the grand opening of the South End's new Ink Underground, Bob Uhlig shares how to make successful open spaces with The Boston Globe's Tim Logan. "Color will help and so will good lighting. Filling the place with popular, consistent programming will go a long way toward making it a destination...You want to get people to come back, repeatedly."
