Climate Ready East Boston is the first neighborhood focus area project launched after the release of the latest Climate Ready Boston (CRB) report in December 2016.
East Boston is one of Boston’s neighborhoods most vulnerable to sea level rise and climate change impacts. Through this Boston project, we’re focusing on the areas of East Boston that face current and growing risk of flooding, and are identifying short and long term strategies to protect the neighborhood. We’re working closely with the local community development organization, Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH), on this project.
On Thursday, May 23rd the project team is holding our first community workshop. At this workshop, you will more learn about the specific risks East Boston faces and potential solutions that can help us prepare for flooding and sea level rise. We will also ask for your feedback on what you’d like to see in the neighborhood, and give you the opportunity to speak directly with the City and design team.
Please join us on May 23rd from 6:00-8:00pm at the Excel Academy High School in East Boston and register here so we know you’re coming.
To stay up to date with Climate Ready East Boston and other projects in Charlestown and upcoming work in South Boston, continue following Greenovate. If you can’t make this workshop, you can share your ideas through our online community survey. We will also be hosting another workshop in June – date to be determined.
