City of Campbell River to host workshop on sea level rise

City is seeking feedback on community values related to sea level rise adaptation

As part of the City of Campbell River’s ongoing study into the effects of sea level rise, it is hosting a workshop and feedback session at the Maritime Heritage Centre on March 19.

“The City of Campbell River has developed conceptual adaptation options based on information from technical assessment of Campbell River’s marine and river shores, and is seeking feedback on community values related to sea level rise adaptation,” according to the city’s release on the workshop. Light refreshments will be served for those in attendance.

“There is no single solution for addressing sea level rise in Campbell River, and public participation in this upcoming workshop will help the city evaluate sea level rise adaptation options for the community and confirm the most suitable adaptation strategies over time,” says manager of long range planning and sustainability Amber Zirnhelt. “The varying coastline and distribution of infrastructure along the foreshore will require different adaptation strategies in different areas, and the conceptual options represent just some of the many possible adaptation strategies.”

Space in the workshop is limited, so those interested in attending are being asked to register by contacting chloe.swabey@campbellriver.ca or 250-286-5796.

People who are unable to attend can find more information, or share their ideas, by emailing the Long Range Planning Department at policy@campbellriver.ca or by calling 250-286-5726.

For more information on the city’s research into sea level rise, and to register for email updates on the project, visit campbellriver.ca/rising-seas.
