ULI Technical Assistant Panel

With the support of the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities initiative, the Urban Land Institute (ULI) was invited to assess the City of Miami Beach’s current stormwater management strategy. In recent years, the City has embarked on a proactive strategy to address flooding and sea level rise, which has included improving drainage systems, elevating roads and public seawalls and installing pumps to replace the aging gravity stormwater pipes. The Urban Land Institute hosted a workshop, led by ULI members from both the local ULI Southeast Florida/Caribbean District Council and the national Urban Resilience program.
