As our climate changes, so must our business practices. With future
weather projections expected to include more frequent and severe
flooding and an increase in days with temperatures over 90° and 100°,
the city of Newton has just completed a draft Climate Vulnerability
Assessment and Action Plan developed with support from the Metropolitan
Area Planning Council (MAPC). The assessment identifies risks to
Newton's infrastructure, economy, people, and natural resources. The
action plan recommends steps the city can take to be better prepared
for, and resilient to, extreme weather events now and in the future.
Please join us for a presentation of the Vulnerability Assessment and
Action Plan and provide your feedback. Anne Herbst, Senior Regional
Environmental Planner with MAPC will present the findings and lead our
discussion. What are your concerns and priorities? What should the city
do to help your business prepare?
