  • 2020 Climate Ation Plan Update would like incorporate your ideas and opinions. Online workshop to be held October 22, 2020 from 1:00-2:30 pm. Please register at eventbrite for this online workshop to let your voice be heard.

  • Presentation of the proposed Land Use Amendment to update the Priority Planning Areas for Sea Level Rise Map. The proposed change would amend the Priority Planning Areas (PPA) map of the Natural Resource Map Series of the BrowardNEXT Broward County Land Use Plan. This map is used as the basis for assessing future flood risk as a function of land elevations and coastal water levels and adaptation needs in the context of land use considerations. To view a recording of this presentation, .

  • The Southeast Florida Regionally Unified Sea Level Rise Projection: Understanding, Applying, and Considering the Context of the Third Regional Update. This three-part webinar series will support those who are engaged in planning for sea level rise and educating the community around future conditions and exposure to flood hazards in better understanding the projection, how it is applied in practice across Southeast Florida, and the broader context of adapting the region for anticipated sea level rise. Webinar content will build upon itself, and therefore, we highly suggest that participants attend all three webinars if possible.  Register:
