Climate Ready South Boston
South Boston has experienced rapid transformation as the result of a development boom and significant investment. The neighborhood is also identified in the Climate Ready Boston report as the most exposed to future sea level rise and as a key flood entryway. This project will identify short- and long-term solutions that protect South Boston and the rest of the City.
The project kicked off in Fall 2017 and will run through Summer 2018. Stay tuned for ways to get involved.
We’re working with a design team to find solutions for coastal flooding in South Boston. We asked people in South Boston for their thoughts about this project through a community survey.
We gave a presentation on our goals and progress, shared community survey results and feedback, and displayed climate resilience options for South Boston.
Disclaimer: the posters and presentation contain graphics and renderings of draft options. The final proposed coastal flooding resiliency solutions will be in the final report.
