District Council Information - Virtual Fall Meeting
As you have probably been expecting, ULI has made the decision to hold the 2020 Fall Meeting entirely virtually
From sea level rise to heat waves, from storm surge to drought, the many impacts of climate change threaten the built environment in ways that have serious consequences for the health, viability, and economic vitality of our cities. Investments in community resilience are increasing through both public sector programs and private sector involvement.
ULI Sacramento in partnership with Sacramento Valley Section APA held a ‘Developing Urban Resilience’ webinar August 28th.
Leah Sheppard and Elizabeth Foster, both with the Urban Land Institute Resiliency division, highlighted innovative city policies that respond to climate risk and
that create new mechanisms for private sector participation in adaptation and mitigation. Examples of real estate projects and policies that showcase best practices in resilient design are outlined in the program powerpoint. Past ULI Chair, Marq Truscott, FASLA, moderated a local panel with guest speakers Dalton Lavoie of Stantec and Rachel Huang of SMUD and discussed local initiatives for enhancing our region’s resilience. Please find a link to the powerpoint presentation, along with additional resources below.
