Character Towns: Positioning Small Cities and Towns for the New Economy
Orlando LEED-certified planner and author Bill Kercher will share his observations on what makes a "character town" - a small city or town with friendly and inviting neighborhoods and an engaging business community both of which support a sociable and civil society; a society that is proud of its home town, protective of its heritage and committed to its well-being. Using Florida communities as examples, Kercher will discuss essential attributes of character towns and provide action strategies to transform Florida's cities into livable and economically vibrant communities of the 21st century. This event has been approved for 1.5 AICP CM Credits for planners (#9132937).

Implementing Florida 2070: Successful Local Conservation Ballot Measures in Florida
The Trust for Public Land’s Will Abberger and Pegeen Hanrahan will share proven strategies to assist Florida communities with the design and passage of local ballot measures to generate new public funds for parks and land conservation. The TPL Conservation Finance program has helped pass 26 local ballot measures in Florida, creating over $1 billion in new funding for conservation. In 2016 alone, TPL helped win voter approval for all three conservation measures on the ballot: a ½-cent sales tax in Brevard County for Indian River Lagoon restoration, a ½-cent sales tax in Alachua County for Gainesville city parks and Alachua Forever, and continuation of Lee County’s Conservation 2020 program. The goal of the webinar is to share how local governments and community groups in Florida can help fund the conservation of important local and regional natural lands to support Florida’s greenways and trails networks, the Florida Wildlife Corridor, and other park and conservation initiatives. This event has been approved for 1.5 AICP CM Credits for planners (#9132938) and 1 CEC for Certified Floodplain Managers.
