Boston Area Cities Receive Smart Growth Funding
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."
