The work between Wareham and the SNEP Network is centered on the Town’s goals for revitalization of the downtown waterfront area in Wareham Village. As Wareham is at the early stages of planning for economic redevelopment, there is an opportunity to look holistically and to consider how to incorporate components of resilience, environmentally sensitive design, and mixed-use growth. This webinar brings together three waterfront cities that have had similar redevelopment challenges as Wareham and showcases how they have successfully reinvented themselves, all while taking advantage of environmental, social, and economic opportunities.
This webinar is approved for 1 CM credits by the American Planning Association – Rhode Island Chapter.
About the SNEP Leadership Exchange:
Join us as we welcome the first community selected to participate in the SNEP Network Climate Leadership Exchange. Throughout the fall of 2020, the Town of Wareham, Massachusetts will work closely with national leaders from around the country and interact with subject matter experts. Invited guests will help guide future redevelopment plans for Wareham Village by focusing on incorporating elements of climate resilience, stormwater management, and green infrastructure into design plans that are closely connected to economic development opportunities. Through the exchange, Wareham will also be able to explore innovative and sustainable environmental finance opportunities associated with their redevelopment plans.
Each webinar will have an accompanying Podcast available to hear additional details about invited communities who have a compelling story to share. The webinars will summarize details and recommendations that are the result of earlier held private discussions between Wareham and invited guests. These webinars will be a chance for you to hear about national case studies directly from the leaders who helped make it happen in their community.
