Resolutions 2

  1. 1. We all make ’em, we all break ’em. But everyone who lives and works in the 101 cities and towns of Greater Boston can benefit so much from a few smart, simple, doable changes that temptation will stand no chance. Resolve to work toward them in your municipality: you’ll feel better about letting up a little on the kale. We promise.
  2. 2. Things are changing. By 2030, the region’s population will be much grayer, and communities will have to be strategic about making sure seniors have ways to stay in their communities, and about attracting and retaining young, productive adults. One important way to do that, and therefore to become or remain competitive and vibrant, will be to offer – even in the suburbs – both rental and ownership multifamily units.
  3. 3. “Complete” streets are those that allow for more trips to be taken by bikes and pedestrians. The public health and environmental benefits are obvious. But it all starts with a commitment on the municipal level to make Complete Streets a priority, either informally or via a bylaw.
  4. 4. Your municipality is a more diverse place than you may think, rich with people from different cultures and income levels, of different ages, abilities, orientations, and opinions. A little thoughtful outreach can pay big dividends in the vibrancy of the municipality you share. Learn more here.
  5. 5. Retrofitting streetlights with LED bulbs is one cost-effective way to help reduce usage. There are many others, including solar and energy savings performance contracting.
  6. 6. Our region includes enormous agriculture resources and opportunities. Protecting those resources and encouraging more local farming would not only boost local economies and create jobs, but could also improve quality of life and health throughout Metro Boston. Learn more here.
