NAI Workshop - September 8, 2016 - Biloxi, MS

Planning for Biloxiís Coastal No Adverse Impact Workshop began in May 2015 when ASFPM staff met Rick Stickler, Biloxiís Floodplain Administrator and Tracie Sempier, Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant at the Gulf Coast Climate Community of Practice Meeting in St. Petersburg, Florida. With funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), ASFPM, the City of Biloxi and Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant partnered with staff from the Texas Coastal Watershed Program and Mississippi Emergency Management Agency to develop a target audience, objectives and agenda for this day-long event.

Specifically this workshop was designed to provide participants with an opportunity to:

  • Learn from regionally-renowned experts and local floodplain managers about legal and policy approaches to current issues in Gulf Coast coastal watersheds, including current real-life discussion on living shorelines, low-impact development, and higher standards.

  • Learn about the legal and policy frameworks that underlie and guide ASFPMís No Adverse Impact approach to coastal resource management and its relationship with Gulf Coast coastal watersheds and climate impacts.

  • Build relationships with individuals and organizations at all levels across the Gulf Coast region including but not limited to: floodplain, stormwater, and coastal resource managers, land use and hazard mitigation planners, attorneys, insurance providers, business/industry representatives, consultants, and port authorities.

The following report and web page provides a summary and all the materials from the Coastal No Adverse Impact Workshop held on September 8th, 2016 at the Biloxi Visitors Center, Biloxi, Mississippi.
