May 23, 2023

This seminar will examine necessary outcomes along New York’s coastline by the year 2050.  The state of New York can and must examine the realities of what can be expected by that year, including threats posed by climate change, sea level rise, increased storm surges and more severe weather events.   The key to our future is to adapt our planning to confront these challenges based on sound planning and decision making.
