Climate Response Workshop @ Town Council Chamber, Barrington Town Hall | Barrington | Rhode Island | United States

Join us for a panel discussion about sea level rise and increased storm impacts on the town of Barrington and information about Barrington and Warren’s selection as a climate change demonstration site.

With extensive coastline and low-lying areas near the water, Barrington and Warren are among the most vulnerable communities at risk of significant impact from sea level rise over the coming decades.

A panel of coastal experts will join town officials at this public workshop focusing on Barrington to discuss sea level rise and storm surge; state plans, policies and actions on shoreline change; tools for evaluating future impacts; and current and future adaptation strategies to enhance ecosystem and community resilience.

The overall purpose of this workshop is to discuss tools and options for state, city, and town governments, planners and policymakers, businesses, homeowners to address storm surge, flooding, sea-level rise, and other climate change factors.

Presentation and Panel Discussion by:

URI Coastal Institute, URI Coastal Resources Center, CRMC, Save the Bay, Town of Barrington
