FORT LAUDERDALE: FROM "VENICE" TO "ATLANTIS"?
A recent study predicted that rising sea levels are likely to flood a small portion of Fort Lauderdale by 2040, and a much larger portion by 2075. The map below shows how a 3-foot rise in sea level could affect the City. Properties may be "under water" in more ways than financially.
Assistant City Manager Susanne Torriente (www.fortlauderdale.gov/manager-new/torriente.html) will discuss the City/Regional plans for "Climate Adaptation".
Also, the City's Sustainability Advisory Board has scheduled a meeting on January 23 at 6:30 pm for public discussion of the Regional Climate Action Plan.
Randall Vitale, Chairman of the Visiong Committee, will provide an update on the Visioning process, which has completed the initial phases (four district open houses, individual interviews and compiling the community input), and (if known) the date when the Commission will discuss whether or not to contine the visioning process.
The City's Visioning web site is www.fortlauderdalevision.org . To review to citizen input from the open houses, see www.fortlauderdalevision.org/sites/default/files/Open%20House%20Input.pdf .
