Virginia Coastal Program: 2005 Coastal Grant Project Description and Final Summary

Project Task:

FY2005 Task 92

Grantee:

Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program

Project Title:

Blue-Green Infrastructure Mapping and Policy Integration

Project Description as Proposed:

Components of this project will be subcontracted in order to help meet the objectives of the Virginia Coastal Program’s “Blue-Green Infrastructure (BGI) Mapping and Policy Integration Strategy” that was proposed during the last Section 309 planning cycle. The Strategy is designed to create practical linkages among agencies and between levels of government to better accomplish the integration of local land use decisions with state water use decisions. Improving coordination among state agencies and local governments is a major objective of the Coastal Program and is critical for implementing many of the programs and policies developed through Coastal Program funding over the years. Ensuring that all interested parties have easy access to the same data makes coordination easier to accomplish. The intent of this project is to develop blue and green infrastructure data layers that meet individual agency needs for coastal resource management and also support the Coastal Program’s efforts to create an internet mapping system that would be a web accessible “one stop shop” for coastal resource data.

Subcommittees of the Coastal Policy Team have been working to define Blue and Green Infrastructure as well as to provide guidance on policy integration projects. Coastal Program staff solicited proposals from the CPT for this third year of BGI and Integration Strategy projects. Based on staff and CPT review, projects are selected for funding, submitted to NOAAÂ’s Coastal Program Division for programmatic review and approval and subcontracted to appropriate agencies.
