Taking a Longer View in the Gulf Coast


The National Consortium to Map Gulf Coast Environmental Constraints released today "Taking a Longer View," a mapping project detailing the hazards facing the Gulf Coast Megaregion. With less than three weeks before the start of the 2006 Hurricane season this analysis demonstrates the long term environmental risks facing the Gulf Coast, a megaregion defined by its shared vulnerability to natural hazards. This project was completed under the direction of Regional Plan Association, University of Texas at Austin and EDAW and is intended to serve as a resource to ongoing planning and rebuilding efforts in the Gulf Coast.
