Environmental Professionals Network Breakfast: Floodplain Management

Jul 23, 2015 (All day)

The next EPN breakfast is "Engaging the Community to Effectively Balance Environmental, Economic, and Social Needs in Floodplain Utilization".  The City of Shelby in Richland County has been doing just that and has earned national attention from FEMA and others.  Our presenter is Joseph Gies, Project Coordinator and Zoning Inspector.  Joe's keynote address at last year's Ohio Floodplain Management Association was enthusiastically embraced by the hundreds of attendees. And one of ODNR's state floodplain management program leaders, Alicia Silverio, will share a brief primer on floodplain management, then introduce Gies.  So many issues surround floodplain management, and now they may become even more challenging in the face of climate change.  Our discussion is sure to be interesting.
