Aquidneck Island Resilience Strategy

Newport Harbor
Newport Harbor

For this project, CRC is working with an array of government, private sector and community partners to help Aquidneck Island and its four communities – Middletown, Newport, Portsmouth and Naval Station Newport — apply the best available science and public input to the development of a five-year plan to proactively prepare for coastal flooding and storm damage, key aspects of climate change. CRC has worked with the Island for more than a decade on implementing planning programs, such as the state-administered Aquidneck Island Special Area Management Plan , for the management, use and protection of coastal and ocean resources that anchor the Island’s economic, social and environmental health.
