Join Fraser Basin Council on November 16, 2017 for a free webinar to learn about Green Shores Policy and Regulatory Tools for Local Government

Event Description: 
Responding to local governments who are interested in bringing Green Shores to their communities, this webinar will outline a framework (including Shoreline Classification, Official Community Plan policies and objectives, Development Permit Area guidelines, and Zoning provisions) to organize local government action and support implementation on the ground on public and private land.
.
This webinar will highlight key points from the “Green Shores Policy and Regulatory Tools for Local Governments” guidebook, which has been recently updated. Considerations related to a changing climate, including the impacts of sea level rise and more extreme weather events will also be flagged. A case study of local government action in the Powell River Regional District will share lessons learned, and information about how local governments can join a BC Green Shores working group will be provided.
