Our new normal is extreme weather. As residents have been fully aware over the past few days, extremes hit hard. Fires burning out of control in the suburb of Burnside were followed the next day by flooding with raw sewerage in the streets. While it has taken the country and our community a long time to wake up, it is not too late to engage in strategic and adaptive planning. We don’t have to be caught short. Coming up we have the first public meeting on “Our City, Our Climate” on Friday the 9th of February. Check it out on our events link.
