Land use and zoning laws offer one of the most effective opportunities to create more resilient communities. Despite this, many communities remain vulnerable to flooding and other weather-related disasters. With an eye toward this resiliency gap and the opportunity to proactively create more resilient communities, this panel will discuss specific ways in which local, county and state governments can facilitate resilient patterns of development. Panelists will discuss legal and other tools, and impediments and strategies for overcoming them, with a focus on experiences in Texas and beyond.
