According to the 2016 Climate Ready Boston report, 12,100 buildings, or over 10% of Boston’s total building stock, will be exposed to flooding by the year 2070. The Coastal Flood Resilience Design Guidelines builds on recommendations made in the Climate Ready Boston initiative, creating a best practice resource for flood resilient building adaptation and new construction. The Guidelines include a range of coastal flood resilience strategies along with clearly illustrated case studies for common building types in the floodplain. Designed to work with ongoing City resilience initiatives, the Guidelines will be used to administer a future Coastal Flood Resilience Zoning Overlay District, currently under review by the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA).
This lunch time webinar will include a discussion about the costal flood resilience design guidelines followed by a Q&A session. Please bring your questions and comments for our speakers. We are pleased to have preeminent sustainability and climate resiliency leaders present to the BSCES event.
