Encouraging announcement by the BRA

Given the positive announcement by the BRA not to go forward with developing Pier 5, our next steps will be to engage landscape design and restoration contractors to help us to create an iconic destination on Pier 5 while reaching out to appropriate funding  sources from individuals and private foundations.

Acknowledgement of the maritime history, research on climate resiliency or marine ecological studies in conjunction with local universities should all be considered. 

Pier 5 will provide water access for the public in general and expand the Courageous sailing Center in coordination with their goals.

Despite Covid, the Charlestown Navy Yard bound traffic has increased by over three percent in the last few years.
