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 will kick off in Fall 2017 and 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'll be exploring both current and future options. The City’s Environment Department is leading the project, in partnership with the Boston Planning & Development Agency. As we continue this effort, we want to hear from you.
We have the knowledge, talent and resources to prepare our neighborhoods and businesses for climate change and will continue to cut carbon emissions, tackling climate change head on.
