(starting at 1pm CT, 12pm MT, 11am PT)

In cooperation with the American Planning Association (APA), the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) presents the March 2017 Planning Information Exchange (PIE) webinar. PIE, is a free quarterly webinar series focusing on tools, best practices, and strategies on the role of hazard mitigation planning and its connections with other community planning and hazard risk reduction initiatives.

After large scale disasters, the mission of temporary housing is critical. Much has changed since Katrina - one of the largest temporary housing operations in modern history: The technology to construct temporary housing, considerations for resiliency, the development and use of the National Disaster Recovery Framework, and a more integrated approach to disaster recovery. Future disasters, especially in anticipation of more intense storms, may challenge us further.

ASFPM Executive Director Chad Berginnis, will moderate as they discuss:
  • The importance of knowing where and how your community will provide temporary housing after a disaster and how to optimize the temporary to permanent housing planning process
  • The current federal policies that pertain to the temporary housing mission
  • New technologies and standards for improving resilience of temporary housing
  • Incorporating post-disaster housing considerations into local plans and policies
Shannon S. Van Zandt, Ph.D., AICP, holds two degrees from Texas A&M University’s College of Architecture (1993 and 1997), and a Ph.D. in City & Regional Planning from the University of North Carolina (2004). Dr. Van Zandt’s research has created a niche within the housing and disaster fields that focuses on how the spatial distribution of residential land affects exposure, impact, and consequences from natural disasters, particularly for socially vulnerable populations. She maintains an active research agenda, having been PI- or Co-PI on external grants from funders including the National Science Foundation, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the US Department of Housing & Urban Development. Dr. Van Zandt serves on the board of the Texas Low-Income Housing Information Service, as well as the advisory committee of Texas Sea Grant, and has testified before the Texas State Legislature three times over the past two years on issues related to disaster recovery.
