St. Augustine Surveys Public Before Workshop On Resiliency & Flooding At Historic Sites

The City of St. Augustine is collaborating with Flagler College to get input from the community ahead of an upcoming workshop on resilience, sea level rise and the future impact of flooding on historic places.

The St. Augustine: Community Resilience and Cultural Resources workshop is scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 31, at the Willie Galimore Center, 399 Riberia St. The workshop will be followed by a community enrichment program hosted by Flagler College from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lewis Auditorium, 14 Granada St.

Ahead of that workshop, members of the community are being asked to participate in an online survey on the city’s website.

“The survey is to identify what people in the community value,” said Leslee Keys, Assistant Professor and Director of Historic Preservation and Special Initiatives at Flagler College. “It's a short, simple survey that takes less than ten minutes to do. But it will give us enough background information that the facilitators can target the workshop sessions to make sure that they are answering questions that arose through the survey.”
