If trends continue, climate change will affect us all, bringing more extreme weather events that cause flooding, heat stress, and reduced air quality. Vulnerable populations, especially those with lower incomes and older residents, often withstand the worst of these extreme weather events.
Maplewood is entering the final phase of our Climate Adaptation planning process. Since June 2020 the planning process involved research and review of climate vulnerabilities by the steering committee, public comment and feedback, leading to a draft plan with actions and strategies the City can take to prepare for these changes. View the draft plan here: Maplewood’s Climate Adaptation Plan review portal.
