Survey of Coastal Management Needs for Local Governments On the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River
Local elected officials and staff are encouraged to fill out survey to help guide future coastal protection efforts
Response Deadline: Friday, May 14
The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative and its partners are assessing needs facing U.S. and Canadian local and tribal governments on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River related to coastal management and resilience to impacts such as erosion from changing water levels, flooding, and severe storm events. The survey results will guide efforts to help communities safeguard resources in coastal areas.
Who Should Complete the Survey
The survey is intended for both elected officials and staff in local units of government, as well as Tribal Authorities and First Nations, with authority for coastal areas along the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River in the United States and Canada. This includes cities, villages, counties, townships, regional planning agencies, port authorities, park districts or other entities with government authority along the coastline. We encourage multiple respondents from a single jurisdiction, including elected officials (mayors, county supervisors) and staff working on coastal issues (city managers, planning directors, etc.).
The survey should require approximately 15 minutes to complete. You do not need to complete it in one sitting.
Please complete the survey by Friday, May 14
