On November 17 the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership is joining with NOAA to co-host a day-long workshop: “Introducing Green Infrastructure for Resilience”. This workshop is designed for planners, engineers and municipal leaders who are not yet familiar with GI for resilience (coastal and inland plain). It is also designed for community teams (Mayors, Council Members, Environmental Commissioners, Green Team members) looking to interact with experts to talk through resilience concepts for their towns.
The workshop is timed to coincide with the 5th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. We see this as an opportune moment to reflect on successes in implementing GI thus far, as well as to frame challenges, solutions and opportunities for future GI interventions.
Participation will be capped at 50. Continuing education credits are available for planners (6 credits) and floodplain managers (5 credits).
With thanks to the Middlesex County Office of Planning the workshop will be held at the Middlesex County Fire Academy in Sayreville, NJ. The workshop will run from 8:30-4 on Friday November 17. $35 includes materials and lunch.
