In 2019 rbouvier consulting worked with the Southern Maine Planning and Development Commission (SMPDC) to assess the economic and social impacts of sea level rise on three towns in Southern Maine – Kennebunk, Wells, and York.

This work was integrated into Tides, Taxes, and New Tactics, a report published by SMPDC in July of 2020 that provided an assessment of the impacts of sea level rise on people, property, and businesses for each town.  

It was great to see this work referenced in this article from the Portland Press Herald about similar work being done by the Greater Portland Council of Governments.
