City looks toward making coastline more resilient
The City of Milford will hold a second informational meeting about development of a citywide “Coastal Resilience Plan.”
The meeting will be on Tuesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. at the Parson’s Building Veterans Memorial Auditorium.
At the initial meeting held in January, residents and business owners in Milford discussed types of coastal hazards the city is facing and will face in the future, and learned about the available methods of adapting to a changing coastal environment to become more resilient to tidal flooding, storm surges, sea level rise, and coastal erosion.
At this next meeting, residents and business owners in Milford will learn more about the available methods of adapting and how they may be applied in Milford, and will be invited to review the city’s draft Coastal Resilience Plan for adapting to coastal risks over the long term, with an emphasis on protection of people, buildings, and the city’s infrastructure.
