Climate Change Resilience Plan

The City of Rochester’s Office of Energy and Sustainability is creating a community-wide Climate Change Resilience Plan to better prepare our community to adapt to climate change impacts. Please share your feedback by taking this survey

The Climate Change Resilience Plan will guide decision-making toward a sustainable future for the entire Rochester community, will support the resiliency and climate adaptation components of the community-wide City of Rochester Climate Action Plan (published in 2017), and will build on key findings from the Climate Vulnerability Assessment (completed in Fall 2018) to recommend implementation actions to help our city and community prepare for climate change impacts. The Climate Change Resilience Plan is partially funded by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Climate Smart Communities Grant program.

For more details, please see Frequently Asked Questions. Stay tuned for updates and opportunities to get involved in the Climate Change Resilience Plan and share your feedback as we work together to build a more sustainable and resilient city.
