The American Planning Association will host a free webinar October 29 at 1 p.m. CST on how planners can use planning tools and strategies to incorporate drought-resilient measures into land use standards and the built environment. The webinar is part of a series on drought and cascading hazards developed in partnership with the National Drought Mitigation Center and supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
This webinar features a discussion by Shannon Burke, APA’s Hazards Planning manager, and Anne Miller, AICP, director of the Colorado Resiliency Office (CRO) in the Department of Local Affairs. Participants will learn about:
- Drought and the interrelatedness of hazards
- How planners can address drought
- State and local efforts to integrate resilience and hazard mitigation principles into plans, codes, and standards related to land use and the built environment
