Community-Informed Engagement

The City is leading focus groups with community members to better understand and prepare for their needs during extreme heat events, including barriers to accessing cooling spaces and strategies/needs for staying cool in their homes. Focus group findings will be shared prior to the workshop.

During this workshop participants will:

  • Learn about community-identified needs and existing capabilities for extreme heat response,
