Smart Growth and Hazards Resilience: Helping Coastal Communities Stay Safe,Sustainable, and Above Water [CM 1.5; PDH/HSW 1.5] INTCommunities located along the waterfront or in coastal areas are subject to a number of natural hazards –storms and storm surges, flooding, sea-level rise, and shoreline erosion, to name a few. Addressing suchhazards is a substantial planning challenge for coastal communities and raises the question of what itmean to implement hazard-resilient smart growth. To explore these issues, this session will provide anoverview of coastal hazards and describe managed retreat and realignment as a strategy to address coastalerosion using Surfer’s Point in Ventura, CA, as a case study. This session will also provide an overview of a 2011roundtable, sponsored by NOAA, EPA and Sea Grant partners, where experts from the fields of smart growth,hazard mitigation, climate change adaptation and coastal management came together to share ideas onhow coastal communities can achieve smart growth goals while minimizing risks from natural hazards.➤ Sarah B.van der Schalie, Coastal Management Specialist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration➤ David Revell, Senior Coastal Geomorphologist, ESA PWA➤ Paul Jenkin,Ventura Campaign Coordinator, Surfrider Foundation➤ Brian Brennan, California Coastal Commissioner; Councilmember, City of Ventura, CA;Boardmember, Local Government Commission3:15-4:00 pm Closing Plenary.
