Sea Level Rise Task Force

The Sea Level Rise Task Force is charged with:

  1. Reviewing relevant data and prior studies and reports regarding the potential impact of sea level rise on public services and facilities, real estate, water and other ecological resources, and property and infrastructure; and
  2. Providing a comprehensive and realistic assessment of the likely and potential impacts of sea level rise and storm surge over time.

This assessment will then be used to help recommended amendments to the County’s Comprehensive Development Master Plan, to the capital facilities planning process, to budgetary prioritization and to other County programs as necessary.

The Task Force was formed through Miami-Dade County Resolution R-599-13, adopted on July 2, 2013. It was amended to add a seventh member through Resolution R-744-13, adopted on Sept. 17, 2013.
