Water, Water Everywhere: A Dialogue on Flooding and Disasters in Greater Philadelphia
The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season is on track to be one of the top ten most active seasons on record, with five major hurricanes, and a streak of eight straight hurricanes from August 9 to September 29. This begs the question: what is the role of planners and planning in reducing risk to flooding and increasing community resilience? How can flood risk reduction meet other community planning goals, like water quality improvement, neighborhood development, and community cohesion? Join us at the APAPASE Annual Event to explore these issues and more. A panel of water and resilience planners will explore these issues and more with APA members from across the region.
