Abstract

Coastal Resilience Solutions for East Boston and Charlestown outlines near- and long-term strategies to protect vulnerable neighborhoods from flooding in two of Boston’s most disadvantaged areas. The resilience strategy embraces layered flood control and integrated green infrastructure measures that mitigate the effects of climate change, and create social, environmental and economic benefits to the people of East Boston and Charlestown and to all who share in the health of the city and the harbor. It creates a strong vision for districtlevel flood protection including clearly identified design opportunities in the short- and long-term and robust roadmaps for implementation, and in doing so, sets the stage for additional future efforts to be undertaken by the City of Boston.
