Climate Adaptation

If trends continue, climate change will affect us all, bringing more extreme weather events that cause flooding, heat stress, and reduced air quality.  Vulnerable populations, especially those with lower incomes and older residents, often withstand the worst of these extreme weather events.  To address these challenges, the City of Maplewood has created a Climate Adaptation Plan.  The strategies and actions contained in the plan will increase Maplewood’s resilience to climate impacts and help the City prioritize sustainable uses of land and water, reduce waste, and support improved equity and livability.
