Join us for a Sea Grant Brown Bag Lecture Series on Friday May, 17 from Noon-1:00 p.m. EDT at the NOAA Central Library SSMC3, 2nd floor, Silver Spring, MD
Topic: The Sustainable Working Waterfronts Toolkit:
Connecting Decision-makers, Landowners, and Users with Information and Tools for Preserving and Enhancing our Nation’s Working Waterfronts.
This presentation will provide an overview of the newly launched Sustainable Working Waterfronts Toolkit – a web-based information portal that contains a wealth of information about the historical and current use of waterfront space, the economic value of working waterfronts, and legal, policy, and financing tools that can be used to preserve, enhance, and protect these valuable areas. The Toolkit was developed by a subcommittee of the National Working Waterfront Network (NWWN) with the generous financial support of the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Please join us to learn more about the Toolkit, the NWWN, and working waterfront initiatives around the country.
