CHARM Workshop – Kleberg County

 (Community, Health, and Resource Management) 

June 27, 2018

11:00am – 3:00pm


A workshop for resource managers, local officials, planners, developers, community members and others interested  in collaborative planning and public participation for resiliency. CHARM helps decision makers gather input and educate the public about the “what-ifs” of long term growth and planning.


Workshop participants collaborate over a live table-top interface and use local mapping data to plan hypothetical growth scenarios for their community. Real time feedback allows participants to see the consequences of their planning decisions. The planning support  tool encourages collaborative problem solving and no GIS experience is needed to participate in a CHARM workshop.

What if development were higher density here, and lower there?


How does this impact the water quality of our watershed?


What new demand for city resources will we see in 10 years? 20 years?

Where should we encourage development? Avoid it?

How many home are vulnerable to flooding? Surges? In 20 years? Where?
