Sea Level Rise

The impacts from sea level rise and storm surge, extreme weather events, precipitation changes, higher temperatures and heat waves, Arctic warming, and other climatic changes are affecting the reliability and capacity of the U.S. transportation system.

Issue Areas

Creating Resilient Communities

  • What are the best new models in the real estate and land use industry, and how can we support their development?
  • How can we best adapt and reuse existing real estate while eliminating obsolete space in order to create thriving communities?
  • How can we influence land use leaders locally and around the world as they reshape the process of community building and developing both social and physical infrastructure?

Understanding Demand and Market Forces 

Abstract

The City of Keene is already practicing many climate protection strategies. Much of this document lays the foundation for Keene to move forward with a public process and further refinement of its climate change and overall sustainability goals. Another important process Keene is preparing for is a comprehensive master plan update, wherein the community, City, and other local and regional stakeholders will play a major role in setting the course for Keene’s future.
