The City of Chester Vision 2020 Climate Adaptation Planning Elements

Pennsylvania Sea Grant

Recommendations of the Chester Climate Task Force adopted as an addendum to the Vision 2020 comprehensive plan for the City by Chester City Council on June 25, 2014. (PDF, 80 pages). With funding from the 2012 National Sea Grant Climate Adaptation Competition, Chester was selected as a model coastal community for integrating climate change adaptation planning into economic revitalization efforts. This two-year project advances Pennsylvania Sea Grant’s work piloting the NOAA Coastal Services Center’s “Roadmap for Adapting to Coastal Risk” in 2011 and subsequent climate change adaptation goals included in The City of Chester Vision 2020 comprehensive plan. The project goals were to: 1.) Understand how the City is vulnerable to extreme heat, severe storms, flooding, and sea-level rise; 2.) Prioritize and plan actions to increase community resiliency to climate-related hazards; and 3.) Engage city leaders, staff and the public in a dialogue on the value and outcomes of investing in resiliency.
