Protect Newport from Flooding

The Coastal Resources Center at URI has organized a public workshop “Protecting Newport’s Historic and Cultural Coastal Assets from Flooding Caused by Sea Level Rise” on Thursday, July 14, from 3 - 7 p.m. at Emmanuel Church. There will be a combination of presentations and breakout sessions. People can attend all or part of the workshop. A general overview will be given at 5 p.m. The hope is that this workshop will lead to working groups which will continue to meet on a regular basis, with a process in place for the systematic gathering of information and development of ideas.
