The Valleys Planning Council (VPC) has completed a study on Climate Conditions and Associated Impacts, focusing specifically on northern Baltimore County. The goal of the study was to identify changing environmental conditions, evaluate the potential for future changes in environmental conditions, and explore what actions might be taken to manage or mitigate effects on land use, natural resources, livelihoods, and quality of life. The study takes a look at recent changes in environmental conditions as well as what the area may face under future “high” and “low” scenarios of climate change projections and offers recommendations on how government, farmers, and residents might be better prepared to deal with these trends.
