Low Impact Development in CT: Policies, Drivers, and Barriers

April 5, 2016

Presented By David Dickson & Chet Arnold, UConn CLEAR

The concept of low impact development (LID) has been around for quite some time now. So….is Connecticut buying it? If so, how much? If not, why not? New research by CLEAR’s NEMO Program provides some answers to these questions. This webinar will review the results of our extensive internet research covering 85 towns, and accompanying phone interviews with 78 people in those towns involved in the land use process. What are the top 5 drivers that help bring LID to a community? The top 5 barriers that keep it out? What do town planners think needs to be done? You can get the report or visit the Story Map, but why not drop by the webinar too?
