Fulfilling the Promise: Community Building and the Emerald Necklace

Greenway 1

Setting the Stage

On March 29, the BSA Foundation recently kicked-off its latest community education series entitled “Fulfilling the Promise: Community Building and the Emerald Necklace.” This four-part series aims to identify opportunities for community building around the completion of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace along Columbia Road. The series’ ultimate goal is to better understand the Columbia Road corridor and identify an action plan, rather than a design, for its improvement. Learn more.
