Sea Level Summit
June 3rd, 10am - 2pm
Marina Room at Point Hudson
ATTENTION ALL DOWNTOWN AND SHORELINE BUSINESS AND BUILDING OWNERS!
Inviting our business and property owners operating in the downtown and Boat Haven/Lower Sims Way areas to learn and strategize about how to prepare for rising tides.
Climate change is affecting the decisions you make already. As you invest in your business or your property there are new considerations to keep in mind, a new math to justify expenditures:
- Where and when will rising sea levels actually impact the Port Townsend area? What will this mean to you?
- Do you have essential equipment in the basement of your location? When it requires replacing, should you consider relocating it to protect against higher storm surge and water levels in general?
- Will essential services, those things you rely upon daily to serve your business needs, be affected and how?
- Will you still be able to operate out of your current location and, if so, what do you have to do to make sure you can?
- How will public entities need to plan and make smart decisions about infrastructure investment and public safety?
We would like to invite you to a meeting June 3rd, from 10 am - 2 pm in the Marina Room at Point Hudson.
- There will be a panel discussion with representatives from City, County, PUD and the Port
- Hear from Steven Bauxbaum how the City of Olympia is addressing these issues
- Participate in roundtable discussions
- Determine next steps in planning, separately and cooperatively to manage this very real issue affecting all coastal businesses around the world.
Please RSVP by May 20th to email@example.com or 360-379-4693 to confirm your attendance.
