Please join us for a workshop series focused on zoning and public realm in East Boston. These workshops will explore the challenges and opportunities of different types of areas in the neighborhood including neighborhood residential, mixed-use nodes and corridors, and waterfront industrial and economic development areas. Discussions will focus on how features of zoning and the public realm operate in these areas today, and how they could in the future. Light refreshments, translated materials and interpretation services will be provided at all events.

Meeting summary:

This workshop was the final in a three-part series focused on what shapes buildings, streets, and public spaces: zoning and Complete Streets guidelines. In small groups, attendees learned about the local and state regulations that shape waterfront development and infrastructure. Attendees also discussed what they envision in future waterfront industrial and economic development areas in the neighborhood.

Resumen de la reunión:

Los asistentes también discutieron lo que imaginan en futuras áreas de desarrollo industrial y económico frente al mar en el vecindario.
