New England’s historic infrastructure is an invaluable asset, drawing tourists and residents attracted to its sense of place and culture. But those who maintain streets, repair aging pipes and power lines, and seek transformative street level improvements know that our history can also be our Achilles heel.
The first in a wider series, this one-day workshop, hosted by Boston University, will bring together city leaders, utilities, planners and academic researchers to identify barriers and challenges to coordinated infrastructure management in aging cities and explore emerging solutions. Together, attendees will consider both above and below ground infrastructure, from lights, lanes and greenery to pipes, roots and soil.
