Currently, 61% of CT’s population resides in coastal areas. Many of our train stations are easily flooded during storms even now. In 30 years, denser Transit Oriented Development could be largely under water, rendering them useless and driving out diversity. DEEP provides sea level rise studies to municipalities to assist with better planning of conservation and development. This is when we should be planning for what for 2050. We should allow towns who know best where to build sustainable housing to help our neediest. We all want to increase affordability in our towns but bills currently in raised do the opposite.
