Seminar Overview

Development in shoreline areas over the past decade have been complicated by a variety of changing legal and environmental conditions. This conference will look at how shoreline development at public and private ports in Washington and Oregon is being impacted by changes in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), as well as state and local regulations. In addition, we will examine how climate change --and in particular resiliency and adaptation-- is impacting operations, planning and development at public and private ports.

Come hear about the latest developments in the laws and regulations controlling development at ports and in shoreline areas, including changes to the way that FEMA and other federal agencies are mapping floodplain areas, the evolving integration of the Endangered Species Act into the National Flood Insurance Program, climate change and resiliency and adaptation planning, and how Oregon and Washington are integrating these changes into their own local regulatory programs.
