Broward County Florida Resiliency Standards for Flood Protection: Broward County Code of Ordinances Article XXV, Chapter 39.

February 13, 2020

Adopted by the Broward County Board of Commissioners in early 2020, Broward County’s new flood protection standards establish, and account for sea-level rise in, baseline elevation and maintenance standards for coastal and shoreline flood mitigation infrastructure for tidally-affected communities in the County. Broward County adopted a new policy (2. 21. 7) in the County Land Use Plan requiring tidally-influenced municipalities to adopt a local ordinance consistent with the regional standards, which were incorporated into county code as a model ordinance.

Annexing Higher Ground and Preparing Receiving Areas in Hamilton, Washington

June 2021

In 2019, after decades of repetitive flooding, the town of Hamilton in Skagit County, Washington partnered with Forterra, a local land conservancy nonprofit, to annex a 48-acre parcel of land located outside of the town’s 100-year floodplain. Annexing this land will provide Hamilton with a higher, drier ground area where town residents could voluntarily relocate to new homes. Forterra is developing plans for the annexed parcel to build affordable, environmentally conscious homes for Hamilton residents. Hamilton provides an example for other municipalities and local governments either in a pre- or post-disaster context for revitalizing a community challenged by frequent flooding through adaptation actions. As done in Hamilton, local governments may consider possibilities for providing relocation options to residents within a floodplain, including by annexing new land, particularly where sufficient higher ground land within existing municipal boundaries is not available. Annexation can allow local governments to maintain local communities, tax bases, and economies.

A Perfect Storm: Extreme Weather as an Affordable Housing Crisis Multiplier

August 1, 2019

On August 1, 2019, the Center for American Progress published “A Perfect Storm,” a report which analyzes the relationship between the affordable housing and climate change crises, and presents 5 policy recommendations for building more resilient and prepared communities. The report explores the intersection of diminishing affordable housing and rising homelessness, as well as the disproportionate impacts extreme weather events have on low-income neighborhoods and communities of color. Authors of the report assert that local, state, and federal policymakers must take action to build strong, healthy, accessible, and affordable communities in the face of a changing climate.
