At this event we'll have a conversation and take feedback for the Climate Resilient Capital Task Force, a bill to be filed in the 193rd legislative session. We will review some alarming facts and our proposal to compensate:
- Sea level rise is accelerating. NOAA predicts sea level will rise 10 - 12 inches in the next 30 years, as much as over the last 100 years (2022 Sea Level Rise Technical Report).
- On top of this, storm surge will cause "moderate" flooding 10x more frequently than we've ever seen (NOAA).
- On top of this, the IPCC shows rainfall will become 15% more intense, twice as often (Climate Change 2021 The Physical Science Basis Summary for Policymakers).
- Back Bay basement condos and other properties already have a 98% chance of 12 inches of water in them in the next five years (First Street Foundation).
Attendees will leave having heard our proposal for the Climate Resilient Capital Task Force. We will be taking feedback on how to advance the interests of renters and real estate owners in coastal areas.
This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association's first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,500 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
