Please join Andy Teitz who is a presenter on the new online climate change video module (only 18 minutes long) focusing on municipal liability issues and solutions, and the live interactive launch session for it on Thursday, October 21, at Noon.
ADAPT CT and PREP-RI have teamed up to present a virtual “launch” of Drowning in liability: reducing climate change impacts through municipal planning and zoning. Andy Teitz will be on hand to answer your Rhode Island questions, and Bruce Hyde will answer Connecticut questions.
Participants are encouraged to view the 18-minute module in advance as the presentations will 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.
