Dr. Eklund adressing SRPEDD


My name is Karl Eklund

I'm [Immediate Past] Chairman of my Regional Planning District (see here).

I intend to use this page to celebrate the quality of life in Southeastern Massachusetts,
Technology is both a threat (in that better transportation means
more people move here before the regional infrastructure is ready for them),
and a helper (in that the technology used in brownfields rehabilitation
allows us to revitalize urban industrial areas).

Our front pasture.One of the things we'd like to preserve.

You will find more pictures here
And still more pictures here.
There's a gallery of pictures by Jack Iddon here
And some postcards At the Standard-Times site.

There are some nice pictures of Assonet Bay on Gary Martin's site.Gary also lists concerts of folk and acoustic music.

This is becoming a powerful cultural resource in Southeastern Massachusetts, bringing audiences into areas that have been preserved. Barrel o' Music Productions produces concerts at the Historic Roche-Jones-Duff House in New Bedford as well as the Whaling Museum (see herefor other museum programs), the Maritime Heritage Festival (May 3)(see here for the National Whaling Historical Park), and New Bedford's Summerfest.
