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. Join a conversation on lessons learned in community engagement from the High Line (Manhattan, New York City) and the 11th Street Bridge Park (Washington, DC). Both of these projects merge infrastructure and green space with beautiful results, and with thoughtful community outreach.
How can great design energize a community, instead of isolating it? What are strategies learned from these two projects that are applicable here in Boston? How can we create a greenway on Columbia Road that unities neighborhoods and remains a conduit for the movement of people, buses, cars, and bikes?
This event is the second in the four-part series of Fulfilling the Promise: Community Building and the Emerald Necklace.
