Rhode Island’s coastal comunities are vulnerable to rising seas. We're partnering with cities and towns throughout Rhode Island to make sure they are prepared for the impacts of climate change.
Climate Change is already impacting residents and businesses in our state. Stronger storms are causing increased flooding of residences and businesses and warming waters are decimating lobster and flounder populations.
Westerly is revising the town comprehensive plan and the new plan will address natural hazards. Let your Council know that you care about the comprehensive plan and that you want the revised plan to identify areas vulnerable to sea-level rise, flooding, storm damage, drought and other natural hazards.
