Environment

Our department's mission is to enhance the quality of life in Boston by protecting air, water, climate, and land resources, and by preserving and improving the integrity of Boston's architectural and historic resources.

We maintain Boston's wealth of historic sites, buildings, landscapes, and waterways through protective designation and review processes.

We are focused on implementing the Mayor’s commitment to sustainable development, climate protection, and the environment. We review environmental impact assessments, issue permits, and provide information and referral services on environmental issues.
