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.
On Thursday, November 16 from 9-10am at the Century Bank(32 Langley Rd, Newton Centre), please join the Newton/Needham Regional Chamber 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?
The event is free for members and nonmembers of the Newton/Needham Regional Chamber (event sponsor). For more information click HERE.
