Coastal Resilience Solutions for East Boston and Charlestown

Read the October 2017 report, "Coastal Resilience Solutions for East Boston and Charlestown."

Climate Ready Boston is Mayor Walsh’s ongoing initiative to help Boston plan for the future impacts of climate change. The City released a comprehensive report in December 2016 that assessed how Boston will be impacted by more flooding and extreme weather. Now the City is taking action to plan and implement priority initiatives, and ONE has been contracted to work on Climate Ready East Boston and Charlestown. East Boston and Charlestown are among the neighborhoods that are most vulnerable to coastal flooding from sea level rise and coastal storms. The City received a grant from the Massachusetts Off ice of Coastal Zone Management to begin developing coastal resilience strategies for vulnerable areas in East Boston and north Charlestown. ONE’s goal over the coming months is to work with community residents, businesses, and our partners in the region to envision long term solutions, anchored by tangible projects that can be implemented over the nearer term. These efforts will be guided by the principles, strategies, and initiatives proposed in the Climate Ready report.
