Resilient by Design: Bay Area Challenge

It’s no secret — climate change is real, and the threats to the Bay Area must be addressed. Sea level rise affects all of us — not just our communities who have lived by our shoreline for decades and are most vulnerable — but also our roads and airports that support each of our nine counties and 101 municipalities, the major companies that serve as the backbone of our economy, and services like water treatment and more.
They will be in Vallejo doing more public outreach this Saturday. They will have tables out at both the Vallejo Farmers Market and Moschetti’s Artisan Fair, so please stop by if you’re in the area. You can find more information about these events and their team there. This also links to a short survey they are using to get more information on perceptions and uses of the baylands and SR 37. Please pass this along to anyone else you think might be interested.…/2/…/vallejo-farmers-market
