Jacksonville wants your thoughts on coping with climate change

Published on February 14, 2023 at 2:49 pm

Jacksonville officials planning for new effects of climate change are asking residents to share their thoughts on handling problems ranging from flooding to a shortage of affordable housing.

The answers are supposed to help the policymakers who are developing — for the first time — a resilience strategy guiding how the city prepares for challenges ranging from hurricanes to wildfires and cyberattacks.

Two meetings have been held, and a third is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Southeast Regional Library, 10599 Deerwood Park Blvd.

Besides the meetings, the city has a website, resilientjacksonville.com, describing its resilience strategy work with links to a survey for people who can’t go the meetings and a site for people to suggest projects or ideas that would help the city’s resilience.
