West Palm Beach Working To Be Resilient City

The city of West Palm Beach is working to be the most resilient in the state of Florida.

It means all future decisions will take climate change into consideration.

According to the Southeast Florida Climate Compact, South Florida's sea level will rise 26 inches over the next few decades.

This could create a number of local issues, from flooding along Flagler to an increase in greenhouse gases.

Mayor Jeri Muoio wants the city to be ready.

"I have grandchildren. I want to make sure that we have a beautiful place for them to live and work and grow up," said Muoio.

So, right now the city is tackling several high impact initiatives.

Among the most important is "Shore to Core."

It amounts to redesigning the water front and rebuilding the sea wall within their storm water master plan.

Leaders will focus on walkability and less reliance on cars by adding bike lanes and public transportation.

Last year, West Palm Beach received a 4-star rating for sustainability. This year, the city hopes to earn all 5-stars with these new initiatives.
