Baltimore County became the latest Maryland jurisdiction to announce it’s planning to create a resilience authority to address the impacts of climate change. Such authorities have already been established in Anne Arundel and Charles counties, though those aren’t the only places to consider the idea. Resilience authorities are quasi-government agencies that can seek grants, issue bonds and even levy fees to carry out climate-related projects that otherwise might compete against other targets for county dollars.
