City Unveils Transformative Plan to Create Resilient, Open Boston Harbor
"We applaud Mayor Walsh for sharing his vision this morning at the Boston Chamber of Commerce Forum to protect Boston's waterfront and the future of this city for the benefit of all. We are pleased to hear his commitment to pledge at least 10% of all new capital spending to climate resilient projects. As our harbor and coast continue to be battered and flooded by storms and rising sea levels, our world class city deserves a world class vision and plan of action -- and the time is now. We all need to work together to make this happen and The Trustees are excited to be a partner with our One Waterfront Initiative to create more resilient, accessible parks and open spaces."
– Trustees President and CEO Barbara Erickson
