Cooperative Extension to Host Discussion on January 29th: "Bridging the Digital Divide: Broadband & the NH Economy"

Broadband has greatly increased our ability to access resources and information and it has been a driver of economic growth in New Hampshire. Yet, there are still regions of the state that do not have access to Broadband, raising questions as to whether they will suffer economic or other consequences.

On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, 12:40 – 2:00 pm in MUB Room 334, a panel of speakers from across the University will discuss:

Legal Study Supports Adoption of New Floodplain Maps by NH Coastal Communities

A new report by faculty and students at the Vermont Law School in collaboration with UNH faculty and staff indicates that towns in the Lamprey River watershed can legally use recently updated 100-year floodplain maps to make land-use decisions.

The maps, created by a UNH-led team of researchers and funded by the NOAA/UNH Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET), are novel from the previous FEMA floodplain maps because they take into account both present-day and future projections of land use and precipitation patterns.
