Cape Cod Commission Initiates Community Process on Climate

The Cape Cod Commission is pleased to announce a series of facilitated sub-regional community meetings scheduled for October 2019 to solicit input on planning priorities, concerns, and barriers to moving climate adaptation and mitigation actions forward throughout the region.

This community-focused, information-based discussion will inform a strategic framework and collaborative approach to address the region’s contributions to and threats from climate change. The meetings are intended for participants from the public and private sectors, non-profits, and other interested citizens.

“Working collaboratively is critical to establishing a necessary baseline to measure progress as we work toward climate resilience,” said Commission Executive Director Kristy Senatori. “We are seeking a diverse group of stakeholders to define and shape a Cape Cod Climate Initiative, intended to integrate existing activities and initiate new assessments, outreach, and implementation strategies.”

During the meetings, Commission staff will share information from ongoing coastal resilience and climate related work, including a process for establishing a regional greenhouse gas emissions baseline and progress toward identifying potential locations for electric vehicle charging stations. Staff will discuss new tools available to communities to adapt and respond to the ever-increasing impacts along the coastline.
