Climate Change Pilot Project

There's a climate change pilot project underway in Iowa that was
initiated by the EPA with assistance from Iowa's RIO. To determine
incentives for the project we are asking for planners to help answer the
following questions:

1. Are you familiar with the new Iowa Smart Planning principles?

2. What are current barriers you face in implementing the Iowa Smart
Planning principles?

3. What incentives could be provided to assist in implementing the Iowa
Smart Planning principles?

Please e-mail your responses to Mary Beth Mellick, Iowa State
Association of Counties (ISAC) at mbmellick (AT) iowacounties (DOT) org.

Thanks for your assistance with this important project.
