Supporting MBTA Communities Zoning with Climate Resilience and Natural Spaces

We are Arlington residents active in our community and dedicated to sustaining and enhancing our green streetscapes, vibrant ecology and healthy urban environment.

We believe that with increasing heat and intense weather, the Town must build climate resilience into every decision it makes, particularly as to zoning, land use, open spaces and trees, and that this can be done in harmony with other town needs and goals, such as housing, energy and transportation.
