Downtown Mystic coastal resilience forum on Wednesday
Stonington _ The town will host a community conversation about coastal resilience solutions for downtown Mystic on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the B.F. Hoxie Engine Mystic Co. firehouse in Mystic.
According to an announcement of the meeting, the town is currently working with students from the Conway School Graduate Program in Sustainable Landscape Planning and Design to develop measures that can help downtown Mystic deal with the impacts of storm surge, sea level rise and increased precipitation. The school is located in Northampton, Mass.
The purpose is being held to seek input from the community before the students develop specific solutions.
This effort expands upon the recommendations in the town’s Coastal Resilience Plan which was developed in 2017 with a state grant.
