A More Resilient Shoreline
Updated: May 30, 2020
As part of the #VisionChelseaCreek visioning project, we will be exploring resilient design BMP's (best management practices) that could inform and leverage any future resiliency planning efforts, thus assuring that any redevelopment and capital improvements of the area has resiliency of the neighborhoods in mind and is at the forefront of their planning. A more resilient shoreline means finding resilient solutions that will reduce coastal risks and vulnerabilities for everyone (communities, industry, habitats) and that requires all hands on deck in this visioning process. With #VisionChelseaCreek, we have the support of highly-skilled and experienced technical experts in landscape architecture, urban planning and design and transportation and zoning that will help us shape the best and most resilient future for East Boston.
