Climate Change Tool-kit Available
Local governments in Maine are looking for practical steps to help make their communities more resilient in the face of rising sea-levels and more frequent intense storm events.
To help address this need, the Municipal Planning Assistance Program and nine of Maine’s Regional Planning Organizations have collaborated on a series of guidance documents. These documents explain how to identify threats to community resources, and how to respond to those threats by integrating climate adaptation measures into existing local policies, practices and ordinances. Each of the ten documents in the series addresses a different area of municipal responsibility. Click here to access the Municipal Clmate Adaptation Series.
