The Village of Key Biscayne invites all residents to a Townhall Meeting to learn about how stormwater discharge, sea level rise, tides and rain events impact our village and how pumps, roadway modifications and green infrastructure combined with a comprehensive stormwater system upgrade can offer a more resilient future for our island paradise.
This townhall offers tremendous educational opportunity for residents to learn about our existing stormwater drainage system and the challenges in making it more resilient as we face rising sea levels and intensifying rain events.
As we have all experienced to varying degrees over the years, street flooding across Key Biscayne remains an on-going challenge that is only going to intensify as the system continues to age and sea levels increase.
Continued investment in the drainage system is vital to the health and safety of our community as well as economic growth, property values, prosperity and resilience. While the stormwater infrastructure system improvement program will be a multi-year effort that will require a complex planning, engineering design, construction and management approach – the Village wants to ensure residents are involved and aware of the projects every step of the way.
Public participation is paramount and the Village encourages residents to join this interactive Town Hall in person at the Key Biscayne Community Center (Island Room) on Thursday, July 29 at 6 p.m.
*Portions of this event will be available on Zoom and on Channel 77 for those who cannot attend in-person.*
