Four Shore Coastal Resiliency
The four coastal communities of Clinton, Westbrook, Old Saybrook, and Fenwick are working together to develop a regional Coastal Resiliency Plan. This Plan will result in a comprehensive understanding of risks associated with sea level rise, a shared vision for the future, and the identification of strategies and projects to reduce risk and build community resilience.
To learn more about the development of the Coastal Resilience Plan, including the project schedule, please visit the About page. Visit the Get Involved page to map community assets, issues, and opportunities on the Interactive Map and also share how flooding and erosion have impacted you.
Coastal resilience is the ability of a community -- including the natural, social, economic, and infrastructure systems that define and support it -- to resist, absorb, recover from, and adapt to the effects of a natural hazard (e.g., sea level rise) in a timely and efficient manner, including through the preservation and restoration of essential structures and functions that provide a high quality of life for all residents and visitors.
To learn more about coastal resilience, please check out the Resilience Library.
Come visit us at any of the following community events to learn about the Four Shore Coastal Resiliency Plan, speak with the project team, and help us identify community assets and flooding issues. Pop-up events align with existing community events and provide the opportunity to interact with the Project Team one-on-one to share feedback. Community workshops include a presentation followed by an engagement activity where the public can provide feedback to the Project Team.
