Florida's Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTM NERR) and the University of Florida's College of Design, Construction and Planning have received a grant from the National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative to work with Matanzas Basin stakeholders to plan for sea level rise in a way that protects communities and the environments they depend on for quality of life and commerce.
The team will use a structured collaborative process to work with planners, property owners, and scientists to identify areas of conflict and agreement related to sea level rise, develop land use scenarios to illustrate the results of different planning decisions, and communicate these scenarios to the general public. Ultimately our goal is to develop a balanced, stakeholder-driven process of planning for sea level rise that can be used throughout the state and serve as a model for other regions.
