Smart Cities and Parks: Resilient Environmental Design and Infrastructure Webinar - Wednesday, June 12 (10:00am - 11:30am)

This webinar will showcase the planning, design, and implementation of green infrastructure practices in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Chelsea is a dense, urban community with a socioeconomically and demographically diverse population. Chelsea’s unique coastal orientation and geography as a designated port area expose it to a disproportionate risk of environmental and public health impacts, compounded by a high concentration of critical regional and local industry. Current land use patterns coupled with large areas of impervious surfaces have yielded unique design challenges, particularly related to storm water management and heat reduction. Cognizant of these realities, the City of Chelsea is undertaking the planning, design, and construction necessary to increase resiliency and improve local environmental quality. Planning and implementation strategies for open space, coastal infrastructure, and green infrastructure will be presented as well as information about the city’s public engagement and collaborative processes.

Presenters:

Alexander Train, AICP, Assistant Director, Planning and Development Department, Chelsea, Massachusetts

Fidel Maltez, Commissioner, Department of Public Works, Chelsea, Massachusetts
