The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control will host a public engagement session on adapting to sea level rise on Feb. 13.
The session will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Cape Henlopen High School lobby and auditorium, 1270 Kings Highway, Lewes. The Delaware Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee composed of representatives from state and local governments, business and civic advocacy organizations, developed a list of potential options that seek to improve the way in which decisions about adapting to sea level rise are made. The options focus on improving regulatory flexibility, streamlining communications and coordination among affected groups, providing consistent policies and improving data and technical assistance.
This session is the first of three sessions (one in each county) scheduled in February. The following are the remaining sessions: 4 to 7 p.m., Feb. 19, New Castle School, 903 Delaware St., New Castle; 4 to 7 p.m., Feb. 25, Kent County Levy Court Complex, 555 S. Bay Road, Dover. Potential options, presentations, and displays can be viewed at de.gov/adaptationengagement.
