Join the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council and the Urban Land Institute on June 23, 1:30-5:30 PM at the Tampa River Center for the Resilient Ready Symposium. This symposium will showcase innovative design concepts, strategies, and resources developed through the Resilient Ready Tampa Bay project in collaboration with staff at the city of Tampa, St. Pete Beach, and Oldsmar.
Resilient Ready Tampa Bay is a regional technical assistance project that enhances the capacity of Tampa Bay communities to assess, plan for, and adapt to flood impacts through the expanded use of multi-functional green infrastructure systems and resilient site designs. The Resilient Ready team, composed of public and private experts in resiliency, landscape design, engineering, and planning and local stakeholders, facilitated design charrettes in flood-prone study areas with the cities of Tampa, St. Pete Beach, and Oldsmar. These three case studies exemplify the flood challenges and adaptation needs faced by local governments throughout the Tampa Bay Region, and provide innovative design concepts, strategies, and resources to address them. The Resilient Ready Tampa Bay project is coordinated by the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council and made possible by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Resilient Florida Coastlines Program.
