Jacksonville wants your thoughts on coping with climate change
Jacksonville officials planning for new effects of climate change are asking residents to share their thoughts on handling problems ranging from flooding to a shortage of affordable housing.
The answers are supposed to help the policymakers who are developing — for the first time — a resilience strategy guiding how the city prepares for challenges ranging from hurricanes to wildfires and cyberattacks.
Two meetings have been held, and a third is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Southeast Regional Library, 10599 Deerwood Park Blvd.
Besides the meetings, the city has a website, resilientjacksonville.com, describing its resilience strategy work with links to a survey for people who can’t go the meetings and a site for people to suggest projects or ideas that would help the city’s resilience.
