Drowning in liability: reducing climate change impacts through municipal planning and zoning

October 21, 2021 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Please join the ADAPT CT and PREP-RI teams for a virtual “launch” of Drowning in liability: reducing climate change impacts through municipal planning and zoning- the newest in a series of online climate resilience modules for municipal staff and officials (specifically planning and zoning board members and solicitors).

Participants are encouraged to view the 18-minute module and submit their questions ahead of time so that our one hour together may focus on Q&A and discussion with the experts: 

  • Andrew Teitz, Esq., AICP, Partner with the law firm Ursillo, Teitz & Ritch, Ltd.

  • Bruce Hyde, Land Use Academy Director, UConn Department of Extension & Center for Land Use Education and Research

This module aims to help viewers recognize the planning and zoning interests related to flooding at the local level, describe actions they can take in their roles as thoughtful rule- and decision-makers to reduce liability related to planning and zoning decisions, and identify resources to consult for further information.

This is a partnership of the Connecticut and Rhode Island Sea Grant programs; the URI Coastal Resources Center; and the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Funding was provided by a USDA NIFA grant.
