Baltimore’s Planning Department will explain the city’s disaster preparation plans aimed at mitigating the impact of climate change on the city.
The department will hold a town hall meeting at 5 p.m., Tuesday at the War Memorial Building, 101 N. Gay St., to discuss the plans as well as unveil the new tidal flood, according to a news release.
"It’ll give people an idea of potential of flooding… it clues them in on if they should make other types of preparation," said Ken Hranicky, land use and urban design planner.
He said the new tidal flood plain maps will not impact North Baltimore residents living near the Jones Falls, but that the new Disaster Preparedness and Planning Project is of interest to all city residents.
"The damage from these storms is increasing," Hranicky said.
