Located on a barrier island near the Kennedy Space Center, the City of Satellite Beach is in the crosshairs of sea level rise. Despite its relatively small population of 10,000 residents, Satellite Beach is a state leader in community resilience planning. This webinar will cover how the city marshaled support and funding to address resilience. Satellite Beach resident and Florida Institute of Technology’s Dr. Ken Lindeman will discuss use of science-based information to sustain support, including products from the Sea Level Rise Subcommittee (created within the Comp. Planning Board in 2009). Coastal planning specialist Thomas Ruppert will share how Florida Sea Grant has helped to guide this effort through the years. The East Central Florida Regional Planning Council’s Director of Planning and Community Development Tara McCue will discuss the role of the Regional Planning Council in supporting and facilitating this initiative.
