The City is proud to announce it has been awarded a $60,000 San Mateo County grant to study the risks of sea level rise in Millbrae’s downtown. The main goals of the Sea-Level Rise Assessment are to identify and understand the risks of climate change to key assets within the City of Millbrae and to identify actions the City can incorporate into regional and local planning efforts. Once the City better understands the risks of climate change, concrete steps can be taken to mitigate them. This project builds on regional planning efforts to provide more specific information within the City.
In June, the City held a special community meeting to show Millbrae residents some of the challenges the City is facing when addressing climate change and sea-level rise. The presentation from that meeting can be viewed here.
Prior to the June meeting, a community survey was sent out to better understand your thoughts and concerns regarding climate change and sea-level rise. That survey is still open and we encourage all Millbrae residents to complete it. To take the survey, please visit http://bit.ly/MillbraeSLRSurvey.
