Climate change resilience added to the Arlington Wetlands Regulations (Wicked Local Arlington 3/27/18)
The town of Arlington through its Conservation Commission is in the forefront of climate change policy in the commonwealth by specifically requiring an evaluation of Climate Change Resilience in its Wetlands Regulations under its Wetlands Protection Bylaw.
The newly updated Wetlands Regulations, dated March 1, include specific requirements for climate change resilience considerations when applicants propose projects in wetland resource areas.
The regulations state: “The impacts of climate change can adversely affect each Resource Area’s ability to provide and promote the resource area values protected by the Bylaw...
