“This past hurricane most certainly has reinforced the urgency for addressing climate resilience, as neighborhoods throughout the region experience flooding related to sea level rise.  The graphic above could well take place… and sooner than you think. This topic is of such enormous import as to warrant being revisited by Tower Forum. Questions remain about the kind of infrastructure improvements we need, where, and when to build them to continue to protect our investments and prosperity in the foreseeable future.  If you haven’t yet been directly impacted, learn how you will be.  Join us in a lively discussion about what we need to do to sustainably transform our communities.”
