“[Woodwell’s] report provided city council members with the information needed to make difficult decisions about zoning laws. Woodwell’s expertise will help us better prepare for the challenges climate change will pose.”

“When you tell people well, ‘you’ve got to design for conditions in 2070’, they say ‘what does that mean? What kind of storm are we designing for?’ This analysis has given us a better understanding of what kind of disasters we’ll be looking at, and with what frequency, so we have a design target.”

– Karl Allen, Planner, Chelsea Department of Housing and Community Development
