Sea Level Rise Open House and Community Workshop

The City of Olympia, the LOTT Clean Water Alliance, and the Port of Olympia are hosting a Sea Level Rise Planning Open House and Community Workshop on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the Olympia Center, 222 Columbia Street NW. Topics of discussion will include:

  • Sea Level Rise response plan project status
  • Preliminary results of a vulnerability and risk assessment
  • Preliminary response strategies

Doors open at 6 p.m. with staff from the City, LOTT, Port and the project’s consulting team, AECOM, available to answer questions. The presentation will begin at 6:15 p.m., with workshop activities immediately following.

 

LOTT, Port and the City are working together to create a response plan to protect Downtown Olympia from the impacts of sea level rise. The planning effort builds on steps that have already been taken to prepare for sea level rise. Additional project information can be found at olympiawa.gov/sealevelrise.
