CREW Boston

Adapting Urban Environments to Rising Seas

On June 18th, CREW Boston’s Sustainability Group hosted an event on “Adapting Urban Environments to Rising Seas”.  Jill Allen Dixon and Laura Marett from Sasaki discussed planning for resilience in Boston, including highlights of Sasaki’s work as a part of the citywide Climate Ready Boston consultant team, and in other cities. Their presentation visualized climate threats and strategies for social and environmental resilience in Boston as part of the Climate Ready Boston project which was recently recognized with the American Planning Association’s award for resilience. Furthermore, the Sasaki team presented examples from their work in Sarasota, Florida and on the Chicago Riverwalk, show-casing solutions for living with water (and adapting to impacts from flooding). In the case of the Riverwalk, the project goal has been to better connect the public to the river.
