Model Local Laws to Increase Resilience
New Yorkers are at increased risk from the effects of climate change and extreme-weather events. Recognizing this risk, the Department of State worked with the Department of Environmental Conservation and other partners to create model local laws to help local governments be more resilient to sea-level rise, storm surge, and flooding. Cities, towns, and villages are invited to adapt model local laws to meet the resilience needs of the community with the assistance of their municipal attorneys.
