Title: "Newest News" from the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC)
Workshop description: Anne will discuss MAPC’s analysis, and policy implications, of claims data from the March 2010 rainstorms that resulted in a federal disaster declaration. MAPC found that 93% of disaster and insurance claims in our region were located outside the FEMA 1% chance flood zone. Anne will also introduce MAPC’s new web-based resource that provides local examples of regulatory strategies that promote climate resilience: Climate Resilient Land Use Strategies – MAPC.
Speaker: Anne Herbst, Principal Environmental Planner with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC).
