Governor Northam Announces Virginia Coastal Resilience Master Planning Framework
Comprehensive, science-based roadmap will help Commonwealth combat climate change, sea level rise
NORFOLK—Governor Ralph Northam today released the Virginia Coastal Resilience Master Planning Framework, which lays out the core principles of the Commonwealth’s approach to coastal protection and adaptation, and will serve as a blueprint for implementing Virginia’s first project-driven Coastal Resilience Master Plan by the end of 2021. Governor Northam made the announcement against the backdrop of the LaValette Avenue Kayak Launch and Fishing Pier in Norfolk where coastal flooding and seal level rise has led to severe tidal intrusion.
