Students: $0.00
Standard: $50.00


Climate change and habitat loss are triggering shifts in the regulation of coastal water bodies. Join us for a look “behind the renderings” to see how regulation impacts designs across the East and West coasts and hear from a bayfront regulator on policy changes that enable fill for habitat projects.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Provide a detailed “behind the rendering” analysis of how signature waterfront projects have been permitted and interpreted by regulatory agencies.
  • Understand the different entities responsible for regulating waterfront environments on the East and West coasts, and the constraints and opportunities of current regulatory practices.
  • Learn about methods used by design firms to advocate for the advancement of innovative habitat and public access strategies, and how regulators consider the approval of experimental and untested ideas.
  • Learn about new updates to the regulations in San Francisco Bay that remove barriers to permitting of fill for habitat projects, enabling new design opportunities and inspiring regulatory adaptation nationwide.
