New England

Regional Coordinator: Reed Brockman, P.E.

Wonderful Job, New England teams!

What an AMAZING job you all did!  The New England Regional Finals drew a whole bunch of incredible cities, each giving home to some really amazing insight.  I had moments listening to your ideas where I really got choked up!  It seemed you all really took the theme of designing for an aging community to heart.

Here are PHOTOS from the day!

We will be represented for the second year in a row by the Dr. Albert Argenziano School in Somerville, MA.  CONGRATS SOMERVILLE!  GOOD LUCK IN DC!

You all made the news!  You were on NBC-10 just before Saturday Night Live started.  You were on NECN every half hour Saturday night. 

And you were in this Boston Globe article

Great job everyone!

I want to keep this year going.  As I discussed, we are going to have a FUTURE CITY ROAD TRIP.  We will be visiting Union Point in Weymouth MA to see a real future city being built and meet the people behind it.  Details will be coming soon.
