In an effort to provide greater and more equitable access to childcare, the City of Revere is partnering with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), the regional planning agency for Greater Boston, to identify existing barriers to accessing quality care and listen to ideas for the future of childcare regulations in the city.
MAPC is releasing new research that analyzed 27,000 flood claims from the historic March 2010 storms that dropped 18 inches of rain across Eastern Massachusetts. $59m in disaster assistance was paid out. We found that only 4% of disaster claims were located in FEMA 1% chance flood zones. With the prospect of more frequent and severe storms due to a changing climate, what can local, state, and the federal government do to better understand, prepare for, and minimize flooding and flood damage?
Presenters and panelists:
- Anne Herbst, Principal Environmental Planner – retired, MAPC
- Mia Mansfield, Director of Climate Adaptation and Resilience, MA Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
- Jason Mammone, P.E., Director of Engineering, Town of Dedham
- Van Du, Senior Environmental Planner, MAPC – Moderator
Following this event, all registrants will receive a copy of the report via email.
