Fort Point Channel Watersheet Activation Community Listening Sessions

updated 5/26/22: with videos, presentation and survey link.

The Fort Point Channel Working Group held two Virtual Listening Sessions and hopes you will share your thoughts on ways to activate the watersheet and make the 244–284 A Street project and Fort Point Channel’s Seawall Basin an inclusive, equitable, active and inviting destination for all the residents of our city.
Share your ideas, by taking the Fort Point Channel Working Group Survey by June 1st or email FPNA.

This meeting hosted by Save the Harbor / Save the Bay and the Fort Point Channel Working Group is in response to the BPDA's October 20, 2021 Request for Supplement Information, where the proponent of the 244–284 A Street Development was asked:
How does the proposed project embrace and respond to the 2002 Fort Point Channel Watersheet Activation Plan? The Plan calls for significant in-water infrastructure to support small boat programs and art installations including a new pier and boat house. This type of facility would be appropriate for a project of this scale along the Channel.
The Proponent should develop a series of meetings and workshops to advance watersheet activation uses and programs with organizations familiar with the Channel and opportunities for year round use and enjoyment of the Channel and also abilities to attract and welcome Boston’s diverse populations. Organizations including Save the Harbor / Save the Bay, Friends of the Fort Point Channel, the Boston Children's Museum, Fort Point Arts Community and the numerous nonprofit organizations funded through the Fort Point Channel Operations Board.

The  Fort Point Channel Working Group is currently comprised of Boston Harbor Now, The American Cities Coalition, Boston Children's Museum, Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC), Fort Point Neighborhood Association (FPNA), Friends of the Fort Point Channel, Save The Harbor, Save The Bay, Wharf District Council, Related Beal, BPDA and MassDEP.
