The Town of Essex is moving forward with the development of a comprehensive Climate Change Adaptation Plan , which will help the municipality plan and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

To support the development of the plan, the Town is seeking interested citizens and stakeholders to serve on the Essex Climate Adaptation Team. The team will assist Town staff in developing the CCAP by identifying measures to improve adaptation, reduce vulnerability, enhance community resilience and protect resources while identifying potential cost-savings and economic opportunities.

They are looking for people to join who are knowledgeable and interested in climate change impacts and adaptation strategies, as well as representative of a number of local sectors (including business, infrastructure, health, agriculture, and recreation). While not a requirement, preference will be given to those who live or work in the Town of Essex, and can collaborate on resolving complex issues. The Town is also actively seeking youth team members.

“As a municipality, we need to draw on the knowledge of our citizens and stakeholders who know our community best,” said Mayor Larry Snively. “This is a great chance to work together to help our municipality adapt and prepare for the impacts of climate change.”
