Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities: Flood Resilience for Riverine and Coastal Communities

On April 17th, a one-hour Silver Jackets webinar entitled Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities - Flood Resilience for Riverine and Coastal Communities was held. The presenters were Michelle Madeley from the EPA and Allison Hardin from Myrtle Beach. Michelle is a Presidential Management Fellow with the EPA’s Office of Sustainable Communities and Allison is with the Planning Department in the City of Myrtle Beach and the lead for her community's Building Blocks Workshop in 2017.

EPA’s Office of Sustainable Communities provides planning assistance to communities interested in becoming more prepared and resilient to flooding. Through the Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities technical assistance approach, EPA has partnered with 10 communities across the country to help them address their flood resilience challenges, using a workshop model that brings together community members and stakeholders to develop a vision for their community and an action plan to support achieving that vision.

This webinar provided an overview of the Building Blocks workshop process, described how EPA and other federal and state partners work hand-in-hand with communities, and included case studies from two communities. Silver Jackets teams were exposed to possible opportunities for collaboration and a unique avenue to support communities.

Copies of Michelle's and Allison’s presentations (pdf, 7.26 MB) are available along with the recorded session (mp3, 9.53 MB).
