Transcript

  • 1. Climate Change in Northwest Florida: Prevention and Adaptation Christian Wagley www.sustainabletownconcepts.com
  • 2. Land development is occurring at a farhigher rate than population growth,resulting in sprawl. In the nation’s 34metropolitan areas with populations greaterthan one million people, between 1950 and1990 the population increased 92.4%, whilethe urbanized land area grew by 245%, or2.65 times the population growth rate.Source: Our Built and Natural Environments: A Technical Review of theInteractions Between Land Use, Transportation, and Environmental Quality,USEPA
  • 3. “Annual price changes in most of the largestmetro areas, including New York, LosAngeles, Chicago, Miami, SanFrancisco, Seattle, Baltimore, WashingtonD.C., and Philadelphia, followed a similarpattern: Values were most stable within a 10-mile radius of the center of the city, butgenerally worsened with each successiveradius ring as far as 50 miles from the centerof the city.”Business Week, July 12, 2008
  • 4. Comparing Transportation and Operating Energy Use for an Office BuildingSource: Environmental Building News, September 1, 2007
  • 5. For an average new officebuilding built to code,transportation accounts formore than twice as muchenergy use as buildingoperation.
  • 6. Form-based codes support theseoutcomes: walkable and mixed-useneighborhoods, transportation options,conservation of open lands, local character,housing diversity, and vibrant downtowns.Form-based codes discourage theseoutcomes: sprawl development, automobiledependency, loss of open lands, monotonoussubdivisions, deserted downtowns, and unsafestreets and parks.
  • 7. More compact, mixed-usecommunities that follow traditionalurban development patterns arebest able to reduce greenhouse gasemissions and help prevent climatechange
  • 8. The patterns demonstrating how to doit right are all around us
  • 9. We cannot fully prevent and adapt toclimate change until we change therules of development to make it legalto build compact, mixed-use, walkablecommunities
  • 10. A policy of strategic retreat advocatedby state and local governments wouldreduce vulnerability of the builtenvironment to sea level rise
