Beaches Watch Monthly Meeting

September 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Monthly Meeting Topic: Proactive Solutions for Flood Resiliency and Sea Level Rise

Speakers: Dr. Alec Bogdanoff, American Flood Coalition, Florida Director

Dr. Alec Bogdanoff, the Florida Director of the American Flood Coalition (AFC), will lead a panel discussion about how flood-prone communities across the United States have responded proactively to sea level rise. As we enter the peak of the 2021 hurricane season, this timely presentation will share the tools and strategies communities around our nation have embraced to prepare for future flooding and sea level rise. Bogdanoff, along with two of his AFC team members,  will discuss the new Resilient Florida Grant Program and the American Flood Coalition’s recently released report with Johns Hopkins that investigates how resilience projects create jobs, stimulate the local markets and bring additional benefits to public health and recreational space.

Maria Mark, President of Beaches Watch, said, “Our community leaders have been and continue to be proactive when it comes to protecting our citizens and properties from flooding and sea level rise. Our panel will share what other smaller communities have done and are doing to address these same issues. Hopefully, our elected officials will attend this meeting to glean some of those ideas and solutions for our beach communities.”

Questions can be submitted in advance via email to  info@beacheswatch.com no later than August 30.
