Once a site of great public appeal, Coes Pond in Worcester, Massachusetts has become a forgotten glory. In 2014, the Coes Zone Task Force began planning, and working, to revitalize the pond. Utilizing local and state resources, we built and analyzed an inventory of physical documents from shareholders, and data layers from MassGIS archives, focusing on what data are available, and what remain to be collected, in order to support the task force. The results from this project can be used to assist the Coes Zone Task Force, and other organizations and individuals, in their goal to revitalize Coes Pond, and its encompassing watershed.
