Benicia Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Plan

As part of a consultant team, PlaceWorks worked with the City of Benicia to examine where and how infrastructure and businesses could be detrimentally affected by sea level rise, water supply reduction, flooding, and other factors related to climate change. PlaceWorks facilitated stakeholder meetings, technical advisory committee meetings, and community workshops to identify and prioritize vulnerable locations and features. Relying on regional and state-vetted data consistent with the “California Adaptation Planning Guide” approach, strategies were developed to make Benicia’s resources more resilient.
