“Building a resilient city is a serious challenge in response to a sobering threat, but it also brings enormous opportunity to re-think our relationship to the Harbor and improve our public spaces as we protect them—from floodable parks to living shorelines to an upgraded Harborwalk 2.0. We commend Mayor Walsh for seizing this moment to design a waterfront that is more accessible, beautiful, and inclusive than ever before. While many decisions must be made to bring us from here to there, one thing is clear: leadership and support from regulators from all levels of government and the private for-profit and nonprofit communities aligned with community priorities, will be critical to creating an equitable, world-class waterfront. The urgency of climate change requires all of us to step up and work together like never before.”
