In 2015, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 1094, titled "Peril of Flood". The new law, which became effective July 1, 2015, specifies new requirements for the coastal management element of a local government's comprehensive plan related to coastal flooding and the related impacts of sea level rise. See the text of the law here

 

TBRPC is conducting a series of four (4) workshops in March-May 2017 to convene local government planners, building officials, and floodplain managers, along with stakeholders from other government agencies and the private sector. Workshop participants will:

  • Discuss the requirements of the Peril of Flood legislation for local government comprehensive plans
  • Identify best practices to address coastal flooding and the related impacts of sea level rise
  • Participate in knowledge sharing about strategies, principles, site development techniques, and related engineering solutions that will inform the goals, objectives, and policies to be developed by the local government for its coastal management element
