South Carolina is developing a Coastal LID Manual and needs your help! Mark your calendar to attend the Coastal LID Manual Meeting in your region. Low impact development (LID) describes an innovative approach to site development and stormwater management that aims to minimize impacts to the land, water, and air, while reducing infrastructure and maintenance costs and increasing marketability. The meeting is designed to inform participants of current, regionally significant LID manuals from neighboring states and gather input as to the appropriate content of a South Carolina coastal specific LID manual. The meeting will lay out barriers to development of an LID manual as well as effective practices and policies as seen through specific case studies. Participants will be asked to provide insight from their perspectives on what would be useful for their professional duties. This input is vitally important to creating an effective, accepted, and comprehensive manual. Participation in the full day of meeting activities ensures that input is received. AICP, PDH, and continuing education credits through the SC Planning Education Advisory Committee will be available to those who participate in the full meeting. When and Where: 9:00 AM-3:30 PM January 10th at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC; January 11th at Clemson Coastal Research and Education Center Charleston, SC; and January 12th at Technical College of the Lowcountry in Beaufort, SC.
