Town of New Paltz Climate Vulnerability Assessment
About New Paltz's Climate Vulnerability Assessment:
Climate change presents threats to New Paltz and residents may already be experiencing some of those impacts. To prepare for the future and ensure New Paltz remains a resilient and safe community, the Town and Village are developing a Climate Vulnerability Assessment throughout 2019. The assessment focuses on Town and Village operations and assets, but depends on community members like you to help identify what aspects of New Paltz may be susceptible to climate hazards—and how adaptable or ready our community is to face them. This activity will help advance New Paltz commitments toward the New York State Climate Smart Communities program
How we will use this survey:
This survey will take you about 15 minutes to complete. Because climate change can impact many aspects of our community, the questions are grouped into community systems, such as for food, sources of energy, transportation and housing, and jobs. Your answers are entirely based on your perceptions alone (there are no right or wrong answers). Your responses will remain completely anonymous to be combined with answers from your neighbors who participate in the survey to inform New Paltz's Climate Vulnerability Assessment. You can skip any question, or mark that "you don't know", as well as provide explanations after the end of each section. Your thoughts will inform the development of the Town and Village's climate adaptation strategies.
