8.21.20 The Trustees Report release "State of the Coast"


The Trustees of Reservations has released a report that analyzes the impact of climate change on the North Shore coastline. The report, named State of the Coast, focuses on the shoreline from Salisbury to Swampscott. This is the first of 4 reports that the Trustees will release focusing on different regions of the Massachusetts coastline.

The report contains sections on beaches, salt marshes, and housing development (specifically along the coast and within 100-year flood zones). The report also makes recommendations on steps communities can take to increase their climate resiliency.

REALTORS® recognize that the value of real estate now and in the future depends upon the protection of the natural environment. The North Shore Association of REALTORS® will continue to engage with our local communities as they consider climate resiliency efforts, especially when those efforts overlap with housing and private property rights. 

You can find the report here.
