V&A working with communities on tools and strategies for flood recovery and resiliency

In the last few months many Midwest client communities have shifted focus onto efforts to become more resilient. Vandewalle & Associates’ planners, landscape architects and economic strategists are ready to work with local areas and our region’s environmental and engineering experts to develop new strategies that help people, businesses and communities to better recover, predict, prevent and plan for a future that is likely to include more extreme weather and natural events. 

Recent record flooding in local areas throughout the Midwest have made this work more relevant to our region than ever.  As planners and landscape architects we start by bringing capabilities like these to the conversation:

  • Local and regional watershed and flood plain analysis
  • Future development scenarios
  • Future growth mapping projections
  • Economic repositioning
  • Economic impact analysis
  • GIS mapping
  • Coastal city/waterfront community planning
  • Relocation planning
  • Stormwater management solutions
  • Urban stormwater design
  • Public waterfront design
  • Hazard mitigation planning
  • Agricultural preservation plans
  • Freshwater industry cluster economic development
  • Renewable energy projects
  • Project funding strategies
  • Public-private partnerships
  • Public participation and facilitation 

 There is still more to come; but you can see a growing list of selected projects past and present that touch on various aspects of community resiliency here.
