Abstract

Chapter 91 licenses contain provisions that protect the public right to access waterfronts, however historically the information has been inaccessible to city planners and the public alike. This project involved designing a database containing Chapter 91 licenses and public amenities along Boston's Downtown waterfront and linking it to a GIS map. The project group developed system specifications based on user requirements of many key stakeholders. Moreover, the group provided analysis of issues regarding waterfront access and regulation.
