Sustainable Coastal Communities:

Balancing Needs Along Our Valuable Coastlines

  • Audra Luscher, Coastal Hazard Planner

  • Maryland Coastal Program

  • 11/01/05


Local Government Capacity

  • Many communities are struggling to keep up with the increase in technological advances like GIS

  • Limited in their resources to utilize mapping technology

  • Tools often not effective as local government can not keep the information current, its not accessible, or in the appropriate format


Advancements in Coastal Hazard Mapping Technology

LIDAR:

LIGHT DETECTION AND RANGING


Floodplain Mapping - Present

Digitized FIRMS with Flood overlay


Floodplain Mapping - Future

3-D Ortho Imagery with Floodplain overlay


Sea Level Rise Mapping - Present

General guidance maps on land vulnerable to SEA LEVEL RISE

EPA 2001


Public Landing, MD

Present Conditions

Public Landing, MD

2100

Current Rate of SLR 1ft per100yr

Sea Level Rise Mapping - Future


Building Community Capacity to Incorporate New Technologies

OPPORTUNITY 1:

Support initiatives that take advantage of economies of scale when acquiring large and expensive imagery.

Building Community Capacity to Incorporate New Technologies

OPPORTUNITY 2:

Ensure mapping products and information derived from hazard mitigation planning is incorporated into decisions about land use and where to direct future growth and development.


Building Community Capacity to Incorporate New Technologies

OPPORTUNITY 3:

Provide direct assistance to build local capacity to utilize information and data such as providing training to staff and raising the awareness of local elected officials on coastal hazard issues.


CZMAReauthorization:Coastal Communities Program

  • Establishes a ready-made framework for addressing many of these community issues.

  • Provides funds to minimize the loss of life and property from coastal hazards by managing development in hazardous areas, providing education, and supporting local and state planning.
