The one thing each New England state agency wants you to understand regarding coastal development projects and policy
Challenges from climate change impacts along the coast have long been recognized by our environmental industry. As we’ve heard over the past two annual EBC Ocean and Coastal Resources Committee’s Regional Agency Updates, regulators and practitioners continue to develop regulatory updates, policies, programs, and innovative solutions in the face of sea level rise and more intense and frequent coastal storms. Given the quickly evolving coastal resiliency landscape, it can be challenging to stay abreast of the latest developments. The need for property owners, from residential homeowners and municipalities to commercial developments and water-dependent industries, to remain current with state coastal zone management policies and design strategies continues to be more important than ever.
This EBC 3rd Annual Ocean and Coastal Resources Regional Agency Update will present a panel of state regulators discussing the latest coastal hot topics within their jurisdiction. Attend not only to hear what they share but equipped with your own questions to foster an engaging and informative meeting and to advance our industry together.
A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.
General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
