Newmarket's Path to Coastal Resilience

Newmarket's Path to Coastal Resilience

On November 4, the Town of Newmarket held an all town meeting to discuss climate change and it's impact on the comunity. As you are aware, if you turn on the news the effects of climate change are evident. We’ve seen record flooding, massive storms, and raging forest fires throughout the US and the world.  

What does this mean for Newmarket and how can we plan for resilience in our community?  Infrastructure, water quality, erosion, flood control and sustainability are all topics for our community to consider.  

Local and regional partners have been working on aspects of this problem for years and the Town of Newmarket met to summarize the work that has been done, introduce some of our regional partners, and start the discussion of how local projects and practices might be impacted.  

Here are the resources we discussed:
