How can law and policy influence design to make the metropolitan Boston area more livable and eco-friendly?
- How many cars can the Green Line Extension to Medford take off the roads? Would pay per-mile auto insurance help? Would better bike maps and paths? How about green zoning ordinances?
- Can greenspace and access to riverfronts make our communities healthier?
- What if Wal-Mart and Lowe’s new stores don’t just use renewable energy, but also design their parking lots to stop runoff from polluting our rivers and streams?
- Can Mayor Menino make the city’s public housing as environmentally sustainable as the Apple store on Boylston St the Macallen Building Condos in South Boston?
Meet, greet and exchange ideas…or just kick back…with environmentalists and urbanists working on these issues and more! Co-hosted by Boston Urban Exchange and CLF.
