A panel of speakers from 3 different states (Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) will discuss how communities’ land use decisions can impact and respond to a changing climate. They will share examples from various communities and may touch on agriculture and food, infrastructure systems, the link with smart growth and sustainability, and environmental protection. In addition, each speaker will discuss how climate change is expected to affect their various states.

Technology Division
Speaker: Dale Neef
Access to Smart City technologies and applications that high-speed broadband enables has become one of the most critical factors in any community’s economic development, affecting everything from our children’s education, to housing values, enterprise development, and health and welfare services for the poor and elderly. This is especially true in rural America, where access to high-speed broadband underpins any strategy for future economic growth – and is key to overcoming the “digital divide” and economic dislocation that continues to plague many of our small towns and rural communities across the nation. Many states have built extensive middle mile fiber networks, and for many rural communities the next step is to provide “last mile” connection for municipal, residential or commercial customers. But broadband speeds and dependability vary widely between DSL, cable, fiber, wireless and fixed wireless technologies, and can be dramatically affected by distance and terrain. Installation and running costs can vary enormously. So how do you know what “last mile” architecture and technologies are best for your rural community? This webinar, the second in our series on rural broadband issues sponsored by APA’s Technology Division, explores the key data drivers that are creating demand for greater bandwidth in rural communities, and describes the evolving technologies (wired and wireless) that are becoming available to meet that rapidly expanding data demand.
June 22
New Mexico Chapter
Speaker: Sharon Hausam
This session will express the importance of understanding and working with tribal governments in non-Native planning processes.  It will describe the legal basis of tribal sovereignty; the federal trust responsibility; self-determination; tribal land jurisdiction; and tribal demographics.  It will then apply these legal foundations to multiple planning topics, including zoning, housing and development, environmental protection, historic preservation, and economic development.

Evaluating impacts of subdivision designs on bird habitats by Mark Hostetler, University of Florida, introduces participants to a new online evaluation tool that evaluates impacts of landscape/subdivision designs on bird habitats. The goal of the “Building for Birds” online tool is to provide decision-makers with a way to evaluate different development scenarios and how they affect habitat for different species of forest birds that use fragmented areas. This tool allows decision-makers to manipulate amounts of forest fragments (urban/rural) and tree canopy (in built areas) and determine the best designs for conserving bird habitat. This evaluation tool is most useful for developments in already fragmented landscapes, where decision-makers are trying to decide on whether to conserve tree patches or tree canopies. Associated with this is a bird list of North American species that do or do not use urban/rural forest patches and tree canopy in built areas during breeding and migration seasons.
