Georgetown RISE — A UN Regional Center of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development

Working Waterfronts

The City of Georgetown features a waterfront district, which is vital to maintaining the history, culture, and economy of the County.  There are challenges to a vibrant waterfront including sea level rise and flooding in the historic district, a shifting economy for the waterfront businesses, and silting in the harbor.

The first projects of this group are to do physical investigations of silting in the harbor, and an economic analysis of the businesses, communities, and heritage associated with the waterfront.
