Climate threats

Our active waterfront, a history that draws visitors every summer and fall, and rich arts culture, are all at stake.

Just as relationships and commuters cross over the bridges between our two cities, so does climate change. Climate change does not just impact the environment. It impacts every aspect of our community from our health to our economy to our active waterfront. Our residents currently face, and will continue to endure, increased frequency and severity of intense storms, sea-level rise, flooding, heat waves and drought.
