As Boston begins thinking strategically about its development throughout the 21st century, cities around the world provide case studies for how to achieve excellent outcomes in urban design and community building. How can great design make Columbia Road a beautiful destination for both locals and tourists? What strategies learned from projects abroad can be applicable here in Boston? How can we enhance the Columbia Road corridor in ways that improve the daily experience of Dorchester residents, unite neighborhoods, and improve movement of people, buses, cars, and bikes?
On May 10, Implementation, the fourth and final event in the series Fulfilling the Promise: Community Building and the Emerald Necklace, will focus on execution strategies for community-driven initiatives.
Panelists will discuss lessons learned from urban design projects both large and small; from tactical short-term strategies to complex public-private partnerships, all of which could benefit Boston’s public realm.
Panelists include Mark Klopfer, ASLA; Marie Law Adams, AIA; Andrew Howard, AICP.
For those who qualify, 2 LUs are available.
