Here in Biddeford, we are already experiencing the impacts of climate change – from warmer winters, to more extreme rainfall events, to rising sea levels. Luckily, the city of Biddeford is now hard at work to create a Climate Action Plan that will focus on addressing both the causes and consequences of climate change.

To ensure that this plan is driven by the needs and concerns of Biddeford residents, the Climate Task Force is asking people who live, work, and play in Biddeford to take a five-minute survey to identify their biggest concerns and preferred solutions.

The survey can be accessed online at and paper copies are available at Biddeford City Hall, McArthur Public Library, and Heart of Biddeford. The survey will be open through Friday, May 19.

The survey is just the first of a number of upcoming events, meetings, and public opportunities to learn more about climate change and talk with fellow community members about how the community will adapt. We hope that you will take part.
