Through these efforts we can establish a climate resiliency vision and associated goals, identify vulnerabilities to climate change effects for both government operations and the community, and develop and implement strategies to address those vulnerabilities and increase overall community resilience. The increased frequency and intensity of flood events is one major impact that is affecting local communities, driving many of the resiliency efforts implemented locally.
