Event description

Description

Texas Community Watershed Partners, a program of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, is bringing the CHARM mapping application to Williamson County!


CHARM (Community Health and Resource Management) is a participatory planning mapping platform that allows local partners to focus on dialogue and collaboration, not data management or technology. Imagine a process where cross-collaboration and dialogue is supported with data and real-time analysis...


CHARM allows citizens and their leaders to try out different "what if" scenarios for future development, particularly in regards to natural hazards such as flooding. This workshop will be highly interactive as we use local mapping data to look at how planning issues and flooding relate, with an overall picture over long-term planning and development. Participants will be able to take various development styles, in the form of paints, that they can apply to the map and instantaneously see the impacts of their decision on increasing disaster risk.

The workshop will help decision makers visualize risks specific to their communities and learn about strategies for encouraging safer development as communities grow.


You will have the oppurtunity to meet with state and federal agency partners, learn about their programs, and discover how they can support activities in your community.


A catered lunch will be provided at this FREE workshop. Additionally, continuing education credits are being offered for AICP Planners and Certified Floodplain Managers CM/CFM.


When: Wednesday, February 6th from 9:00am-2:00pm

Where: Georgetown Public Safety Operations & Training Center, Classroom A (3500 D B Wood Rd., Georgetown, TX 78628)


We look forward to hosting this interactive workshop for your community.
