On Friday, October 9, Mayor Walsh will attend and offer remarks at the ONEin3 Council's 2015 Impact Awards ceremony recognizing young adult leaders who are doing outstanding work to improve the City of Boston for all residents. This year's ceremony will recognize achievements in categories inspired by the city-wide planning initiative, Imagine Boston 2030, including: Housing and Mobility; Environment; Design and Open Space; Health, Prosperity and Equity; and Arts, Culture and Creativity. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and will be held at Two International Place in Boston.
