Coming to the ASFPM (Association of State Floodplain Managers) Annual Conference in Louisville, KT next week? If so, I hope you’ll considering joining a group of us to discuss how to use the No Adverse Impact approach to floodplain development in your community.
Speakers include Ed Thomas (Baker), Terri Turner (Augusta-Richmond County Planning Commission, GA), Sandy Eslinger (NOAA CSC), Allison Hardin (City of Myrtle Beach, SC), and Christy Miller (TetraTech). And I’ll do a little presentation, too.
We’ll be talking about topics including:
– No Adverse Impact / No Adverse Impact Toolkit – to include basic/better/best (NAI) strategies
– Digital Coast and associated tools
Roadmap for Adapting to Coast Change and associated tools
– Legal aspects of incorporating NAI into the community – topics such as floodplain development case law, community responsibilities, community liability, standards of care, public trust, and takings
The session is Friday from 9-1. 4 CEC credits for participants (in case we needed to sweeten the pot). Register at www.floods.org or call (608) 274-0123.
Hope to see you there!
