WEST HAVEN, Feb. 7, 2017 — The second public informational meeting in the development of the city’s Community Coastal Resilience Plan has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22.
The meeting, moved from Tuesday, Jan. 31, because of snow, will take place in the Harriet C. North Community Room on the second floor of City Hall, 355 Main St. The snow date is Thursday, Feb. 23.
At the first meeting in July, residents and business owners discussed the types of coastal hazards West Haven will face in the future, said David W. Killeen, assistant city planner.
At the upcoming meeting, residents and business owners will learn about the available methods of adapting to the city’s changing coastal environment to become more resilient to tidal flooding, storm surge, sea level rise and erosion, Killeen said.
“The Coastal Resilience Plan will develop options for adapting to coastal risks over the long term, with an emphasis on protecting people, buildings and West Haven’s infrastructure,” Killeen said.
As part of the planning effort, the city’s engineering consultant, Milone & MacBroom Inc. of Cheshire, is conducting a resident survey. Company officials will discuss the preliminary results at the public meeting Wednesday, Feb. 22.

Anyone with questions about the survey can contact Killeen at 203-937-3500, ext. 3007, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
