Resiliency is a community's ability to recover or adapt from a significant event caused by the forces of nature or human action.
Hazard mitigation is the "sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property" from such an event. (Source: Maryland EMA).
As a coastal community with industry leaders essential to our national defense, the City possesses vulnerabilities that we must understand and be prepared to address.
Community Resiliency Plan
The City of Groton has developed a Community Resiliency Plan (CRP) to respond to the anticipated long-range changes that will be shaped by climate change, sea level rise (SLR), and increased storm frequencies and intensities. The CRP is a working document that will evolve over time and guide decision making for City leadership, staff and residents.
