Gulf Coast Community Flood Resilience
Application of No Adverse Impact for Coastal Communities

Can a community plan in such a way as to avoid future damaging events and reduce liability exposure? You bet! The objective of this workshop is to introduce an approach and tools to make a community more resilient in planning for future conditions on the Gulf Coast. Aimed at community officials and local elected leaders, this workshop will focus on the legal and policy frameworks that impact the day-to-day activities of decision makers, practitioners, planners and managers in the Gulf Coast region.

Topics include: the Public Trust Doctrine, takings, torts and other potential liabilities, zoning codes, ordinances and other types of local level policies that can be used to promote community resilience to the changing climate and flood risk. Resources including ASFPM’s Coastal NAI Handbook and various legal issues materials will be provided.

Join us as we explore the legal challenges and opportunities, and promote resilience on a local level through strategic policy making and planning initiatives!
