Climate Ready Dorchester to hold 2nd community meeting

Climate Ready Dorchester is a part of citywide planning efforts to create climate resiliency solutions across neighborhoods.

A city-led planning effort to address climate change and resiliency efforts will have its second public meeting on Dec. 11, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at VietAid in Fields Corner.

Climate Ready Dorchester’s second community meeting will focus on honing in on final design options to protect the neighborhoods from sea level rise, and gathering any additional community feedback on preferred solutions.

Climate Ready Dorchester is a planning effort that branched out of the the Climate Ready Boston report and larger Climate Ready Boston efforts. The report Climate Ready Boston Dorchester Plan will focus on this neighborhood's distinct resiliency solutions. The group last met to gather community input for the process on Sept. 25th at the Leahy Holloran Community Center.

Dorchester is one of the most diverse and largest Boston neighborhood. Residents and local businesses depend on a resilient waterfront to thrive. This project will develop near-term and long-term coastal resilience strategies for coastal flooding and sea level rise. It will also address existing concerns of connectivity, accessibility, and equity.
