Climate Change / Sea-level Rise

In 2015, the Conservation Commission produced a report on Georgetown’s vulnerability to climate change and sea level rise.  As part of the Comprehensive Planning process taking place in Georgetown from 2017-2019, we have taken stock of actions taken and progress made towards the 48 specific recommendations contained in the original report.  Once it is approved at the 2019 Town Meeting, that recent update will be published here.  Most of the Conservation Commission’s projects reflect, respond to, or anticipate the effects of climate change on our vulnerable coastal community.
