Feb 1 – Climate Response Public Information Session

Join us for a panel discussion about sea level rise and increased storm impacts on the town of Warren and information about Warren and Barrington’s selection as a climate change demonstration site.

With extensive coastline and low-lying areas near the water, Warren and Barrington are among the most vulnerable communities at risk of significant impact from sea level rise over the coming decades.

A panel of coastal experts will join town officials at this public information session focusing on Warren to discuss sea level rise and storm surge; state plans, policies and actions on shoreline change; tools for evaluating future impacts; and current and future adaptation strategies to enhance ecosystem and community resilience.

The overall purpose of this session is to discuss tools and options for state, city, and town governments, planners and policymakers, businesses and homeowners to address storm surge, flooding, sea-level rise, and other climate change factors.

6:30-8:00 p.m. Thursday, February 1, 2018
