Land Use Impacts and Solutions to Sea Level Rise in East Central Florida

November 2004

The East Central Florida Regional Planning Council (ECFRPC) was contracted through a grant from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to participate in this study, which included all coastal states along the eastern seaboard - analyzing present and future land use and various coastal policies. This report's focus is on sea level rise and implications for Brevard and Volusia counties of Florida. The maps that accompany illustrate the areas that planners within this region expect will be protected from erosion and inundation in the coming decades.
