Many Florida municipalities are addressing climate change and sea level rise by adopting recommended practices, zoning incentives, or required sustainability only for public projects. While sustainability is a major concern, most cities are not requiring sustainable practices for private development. Over the past two years, two coastal cities in South Florida prepared zoning regulations requiring private sector development to implement sustainable development techniques. In this session, the presenters will describe their cities sustainability goals, the process of preparing the regulations, staffing considerations, the mixed outcome (Miami Beach adopted their regulations while Pompano Beach did not), and finally, lessons learned.
