Description:

The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) invites you to join the second community workshop for the Fort Point District 100 Acres Open Space planning initiative.

The Fort Point District 100 Acres Open Space public engagement and concept design process will serve as a guide for future development of open spaces in the area. Current goals of the project include:

  • Provide a vision and programmatic plan for future development of parks and open space that are accessible and available to all.
  • Ensure a diverse and balanced mix of parks uses based on community input and user needs.
  • Develop a system of open space areas that relate to each other, the surrounding built context and the historic Fort Point Channel District.
  • Design landscapes that are adaptive and resilient to climate change impacts including sea level rise, storm surge, heat island, and stormwater, and contribute to neighborhood flood protection.
  • Establish meaningful connections to the Fort Point Channel watersheet and surrounding open space, streets and linear connections, including Harborwalk and the South Bay Harbor Trail.

An overview presentation will begin at 10:30 AM followed by the community workshop activities.
