City of Miami residents are invited to a series of community meetings on the risks Miami faces from climate change and hurricanes. The goal is to get residents’ input on what issues and initiatives should be prioritized in the “Climate Ready Miami” strategy.

Each of the eight workshops will have information specific to the neighborhoods in and around the area (known as a NET district) where it takes place. However, residents and business-owners may attend any workshop in any location. Light bites and child care will be provided. Select meetings will have in-person translation services available in Spanish or Haitian Creole for those who speak a language other than English. 

When complete, the Climate Ready Miami strategy will lay out a multi-year plan to address risks from flooding, storms, and rising temperatures. The strategy also includes actions to better prepare homes, businesses, neighborhoods, and infrastructure for changing climate conditions.
