On July 9th, three National Trust staff members took part in Annapolis’ Weather It Together Town Hall. It was a great venue to talk with people and promote the This Place Matters campaign. The town hall was part of the public outreach effort the city is leading to engage residents, business owners and community leaders in thinking about and planning for the effects of climate change on their city. Attendees listened to presentations by the City, the National Park Service, and the Army Corps of Engineers, learned about ways to protect their properties from storms and flooding, and were introduced to financial incentives to make changes to their properties. Additional groups who participated in the town hall included the U.S. Naval Academy, the Annapolis Office of Emergency Management, Annapolis Planning & Zoning Department, Maryland Emergency Management Agency, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Maryland Office of Planning / Maryland Historical Trust, Historic Annapolis, and the MainStreets Annapolis Partnership.
