Boston Area Cities Receive Smart Growth Funding

Each of the cities just north of Boston will use its federal funds however it sees fit to boost smart growth principles and local economic development.

Reports Brenda J. Buote:

"In Chelsea, planners will develop a green infrastructure plan for a half-mile stretch of Broadway, encompassing a 10-block area between Crescent and Webster avenues. The goals of the $70,000 project are to reduce water pollution, including runoff into Chelsea Creek; reduce flooding; and restore ground water. The project will focus on storm-water management tools that can be applied to other urban communities in the Mystic River Watershed."
