City of Portsmouth Planning Department
Dear Property Owner,
As a result of the City of Portsmouth’s 2013 Coastal Resilience Initiative, Kate Homet, a Fellow within the City’s Planning Department, is surveying the most at-risk historic structures in the community for storm surge and coastal flooding events. This survey will allow our department to get a better understanding of the vulnerabilities affecting the Portsmouth Historic District and ways we can adapt our historic structures for future severe weather events and coastal flooding. The results of this survey will be compiled into a database and used for the creation of a property map detailing structures at risk for groundwater flooding and will support future planning efforts.
