An Assesment of the Preferences of Urban Residents for Green SpacePublic

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) is developing a Statewide Land Conservation Plan. A focus of the new plan is to increase climate change resilience by developing green space in urban areas. The goal of our project was to identify types of green space that urban residents prefer in their communities and how their preferences can promote climate change resiliency. This was accomplished by developing eight case studies on existing urban green spaces, and distributing surveys to and conducting interviews with urban residents. The top preferences were parks, community gardens, and walking paths. We recommended that the EEA consider the availability of parking when developing green space, utilize connections with NGOs, and conduct more data collection.
