Lessons from the World Trade Center for Open Space Planning Generally and Boston's Big Dig Specifically

Mary L. Clark

Abstract

This paper looks to several land use planning issues at stake in both the World Trade Center redevelopment and Central Artery/Tunnel Project, offering some lessons for the future of public open space planning with respect to the influence of the press, the centrality of politics, the urgency of addressing public and private claims of land ownership, the need to engage the public, and seizing the opportunity to create new public transportation links.
