State of the Built Environment: Greater Boston’s Infrastructure

Author: Barry Bluestone, James Huessy, and Catherine Tumber, with assistance from Rick Dimino, Tom Nally, Tom Ryan, and Sarah Shields

This report is a comprehensive examination of the impacts of population and economic growth on Greater Boston’s transportation, energy use, and water, sewer and waste management systems, as well as environment, open space, and the consequences of forecasted climate change on the region’s seaports over the next 15 years.

The purpose of this report, modeled after our annual Greater Boston Housing Report Card, is to take the measure of current infrastructure throughout the 147 communities in Suffolk, Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, and Plymouth Counties, and to project the requirements for augmenting the built environment to meet the region’s needs in 2030. Our ultimate aim is to assist in appropriate planning for the anticipated growth of the region.
