The Boston waterfront is growing – and so is the pressure to promote actions that will make coastal lands resilient to climate change and to protect the public’s access to Boston Harbor. Join Conservation Law Foundation and Boston Harbor Now for a forum to discuss the climate change challenges facing waterfront development. We will discuss the findings from CLF’s recent report, “Climate Change and the Massachusetts Public Waterfront Act,” and discuss what steps, including regulatory changes, may be necessary to encourage climate adaptation on Boston’s waterfront and protection of the public realm.
The forum will feature a broad range of panelists from the regulatory, business, community, and development sectors to discuss current challenges to waterfront development in Boston and across Massachusetts. Learn how we can update our regulatory framework to ensure that waterfronts in Massachusetts are safe, sustainable, and accessible for all.
Space is limited, so please register today. Lunch will be provided.
