Weather It Together

ULI Baltimore and the City of Annapolis received a ULI National grant to assist the City in developing their Cultural Resource Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Weather It Together

ULI Baltimore members with national or international experience in the field of adaptation for sea level rise / tidal flooding and or, in the case of weather-related disasters, building resiliency.  While the project is specific to the Annapolis historic district and the Eastport Conservation District, experience or knowledge of planning and mitigation methods used nationally and internationally would be greatly valued.

The City is looking for this expertise in order to facilitate the creation of the City’s first Cultural Resources Hazard Mitigation Plan. Annapolis is using FEMA’s guidance for integrating cultural resources into hazard mitigation planning, and is nearing the end of the risk assessment phase. In the next phase, the City will engage the community to develop goals, objectives, strategies and an implementation approach.
