Friday, December 11, 2020. 1:00 PM Eastern. Webinar: Incorporating Sea Level Rise into a Capital Facilities Plan or Capital Infrastructure Plan. Joseph DeAngelis, American Planning Association. Sponsored by American Planning Association Hazard Mitigation and Disaster Recovery Planning Division. Register here.
This is the fourth in our four-part webinar series exploring how local planners can understand and incorporate sea level rise projections into the planning process. In this webinar we will explore how to incorporate sea level rise and coastal hazards into the capital infrastructure or capital facilities planning process. In some cases, local planners are an integral part of the capital infrastructure planning process. Under these types of systems, planners can play an important role integrating sea level rise into the process of prioritizing and selecting projects to be included in the CIP. In other jurisdictions, planners provide input but are not central in the development of a CIP. In these situations, planners can play a role influencing how sea level rise can be incorporated into the CIP process.
We will be joined by a planner from the City of Olympia, WA and the Chief Resilience Officer from Monroe County, Florida representing two different approaches along with Joseph DeAngelis, planner from APA who prepared a Planning Advisory Service report (PAS 596) on Planning for Infrastructure Resilience.
