Natural Systems

NS-1
Develop a vital signs status and trends monitoring program for biological communities. Key parameters may include rate of sea-level rise; saltwater intrusion boundary and monitoring wells; landscape-level vegetation patterns; percent coral cover and condition in offshore reef zones; water temperature and pH in areas; and occurrence and range of invasive exotic plants and animal species.
NS-12
Develop long-term turtle-nesting beach preservation and management strategies to reduce nest vulnerability and mortality.

Public Policy Advocacy

PP-8
Support and advocate for continued implementation and funding on the state and federal levels for the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) in recognition of the important role of CERP in climate adaptation planning and local water resource management related to regional water storage and aquifer recharge, important under variable climate conditions and sea level rise.

Sustainable Communities and Transportation

SP-33
Coordinate initiatives with those of the seven- county Southeast Florida Prosperity Plan, known as Seven50, to maximize the opportunities presented as Seven50 is developed (e.g. sharing data and analysis; participating in alternative future scenario planning; engaging a myriad of public, private and civic partners) and actively engage in Seven50 implementation efforts, designed to address the following Livability Principles: Provide more transportation choices Promote equitable, affordable housing Enhance economic competitiveness Support existing communities Coordinate policies and leverage investment Value communities and neighborhoods Enhance community resiliency to the impacts of Climate Change
