This HRPDC is launching the “HRPDC Breakfast Club” this month before the start of the Executive Committee meeting on September 18, 2014. The “Club” is an informal opportunity to ask HRPDC staff and other experts about regional projects or initiatives. It is a response to a request from the HRPDC Commissioners during their retreat in May 2014 to have greater access and engagement with the technical experts on the HRPDC staff.
Between 8:30-9:30am, HRPDC staff and regional experts will be available in an open house type setting that will allow you to review posters, maps and materials and ask questions while you enjoy breakfast. Each breakfast club will be focused on a specific project.
The first HRPDC Breakfast Club will provide information about Dutch Dialogues. The Dutch Dialogues are collaborative efforts of Dutch technical experts, the Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C., local and state governments and other stakeholders. The first Dutch Dialogues were held in New Orleans. The goal of this effort was to improve the region’s approach to water management through learning about the Dutch perspective on “living with water.” The HRPDC is coordinating the stakeholder interviews to begin Dutch Dialogues in several communities in Hampton Roads this fall.
Please plan to stop by the conference room behind the front desk and learn more about creative, integrated planning for sea level rise and recurrent flooding in Hampton Roads.
