http://www.learningconstruction.com Step by Step Tutorials: A storm drain, storm sewer (US), stormwater drain (Australia and New Zealand) or drainage well system (UK) or simply a drain or drain system is designed to drain excess rain and ground water from paved streets, parking lots, sidewalks, and roofs. Storm drains vary in design from small residential dry wells to large municipal systems. They are fed by street gutters on most motorways, freeways and other busy roads, as well as towns in areas which experience heavy rainfall, flooding and coastal towns which experience regular storms. Many storm drainage systems are designed to drain the storm water, untreated, into rivers or streams. There are two main types of stormwater drain (storm sewer) inlets: side inlets and grated inlets. Side inlets are located adjacent to the curb (kerb) and rely on the ability of the opening under the backstone or lintel to capture flow. They are usually depressed at the invert of the channel to improve capture capacity.Building codes and local government ordinances vary greatly on the handling of storm drain runoff. New developments might be required to construct their own storm drain processing capacity for returning the runoff to the water table and bioswales may be required in sensitive ecological areas to protect the watershed.

Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) By reviewing the conservation history of the Adirondack Park, this lecture examines strategies to manage land use and natural resources in protected areas. The Adirondacks has been protected since the 1880s and became a national park in the 1970s. The government manages the park for a variety of uses, including recreational, ecological, and natural resource-related uses. The multiple uses of the park create conflict amongst stakeholders and require regulations that prevent certain types of development. The lecture reviews regulations and zoning ordinances that protect public lands. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Allocating and Managing Land Use 07:52 - Chapter 2.

Presented by Minnesota Waters and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, this video explores changes to Minnesota's lakes and the impacts of increasing shoreland development on shoreline habitat, water quality, and the enjoyment of lakes for generations to come. The quality of a lake depends primarily on what happens on the land around the lake and in its watershed. Land use is decided locally, by individuals and local governments, whose land-use choices now will determine the future of Minnesota's lakes. Through conversations with experts, this DVD discusses threats facing our lakes as well as protective strategies for landowners and local government decision-makers that will insure continued enjoyment of Minnesota's lakes. Healthy lakes are important in many aspects --- our quality of life, recreational enjoyment and the economy of our communities and state. Minnesota's lakes are indeed at risk. We need to act now...before it's too late. This video shows video of lakes and waterways, shorelines and natural plantings, and maps. It also features interviews with individuals.

Recorded on Nov. 16 by the APA Florida Broward County Section 1.5 CM credit. Add credit here: http://bit.ly/2ghzwHr Recent changes made by the Florida Legislature have taken a carrot and stick approach to transportation concurrency. On one hand, they have provided local governments throughout Florida the opportunity to plan for a land use and transportation system best suited to meet the needs of their community. On the other, they have substantially clamped down on the ability of local government to time, regulate and impose mitigation requirements on new development. Further, in many urban areas, adding roadway capacity is no longer feasible or desirable. Thus, local governments throughout Florida are exploring Mobility Plans and Mobility Fees as an alternative to concurrency and road impact fees and exploring creative 21st Century ways to provide mobility through means other than adding road capacity. Learn how autonomous vehicles, car, ride and bicycle sharing, golf carts, kayaks, cycle tracks and multi-use trails that accommodate walking, bicycling and other 21st Century approaches are being integrated into Mobility Plans and how Mobility Fees can be used to assist with funding these alternative approaches to Mobility. Speakers: - Debbie Love, AICP, Director of Planning, Public Relations and Outreach at Keith and Schnars - Jonathan B. Paul, AICP, Principal at NUE Urban Concepts, LLC Debbie Love, AICP has 25+ years of experience in transportation planning, mobility fee studies, capital projects planning, community visioning, comprehensive plans and more. Deb has authored city-wide, neighborhood and transit-oriented redevelopment plans for urban and rural communities throughout Florida. She has served as Project Manager for the Osceola County Mobility Fee, City of Maitland Mobility Fee and Plan, Dade City Multimodal transportation impact fee, and the City of Miami Beach mobility fee projects. Deb also contributes her time as a national ambassador to APA National, mentoring new planners to advance professional planning careers. Jonathan B. Paul, AICP has over 17 years of land use and transportation planning experience. Mr. Paul founded NUE Urban Concepts, LLC to work with local governments to develop innovative land use concepts and mobility plans, implement complete streets and establish creative financing techniques to fund mobility. He worked as the Concurrency & Impact Fee Manager for Alachua County where he led the County’s Mobility Plan effort, the 1st Mobility Plan adopted in Florida. Jonathan is the lead planner the Celebration Pointe Transit Oriented Development. He has served as an adjust professor at the University of Florida and Interim Transportation Director for Sarasota County. Jonathan has led Mobility and Multimodal Fee efforts for Alachua, Sarasota and Osceola Counties and the Cities of Maitland, Dade City and Altamonte Springs. This year, NUE Urban Concepts will be undertaking Mobility and Multimodal efforts for the City of Palm Coast, City of Miami Beach, City of Palm Beach Gardens and the City of West Palm Beach. ================================= JOIN the APA Florida: http://bit.ly/ytjoinapafl Connect with APA Florida online: Visit the APA FLORIDA WEBSITE: http://bit.ly/ytapaflsite Like APA FLORIDA on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/ytapaflfb Follow APA FLORIDA on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/ytapafltw About APA Florida: The Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA Florida) is a non-profit organization of professionals, students, and allied professionals providing vision and leadership for the future development and redevelopment of Florida communities.

3/11/2016: Power inscribes order on space through codes. Bureaucratic codes measure and normalize dynamic ecologies and constitute the substrate of any infrastructural system, organization, and praxis. They striate space and punctuate time to increase efficiency, maximize profit, reduce risk, and maintain order in cultural, social, economic, and political spheres. #decoding gauges the agency of spatial practices in relation to the challenges and capacities prompted by codes and protocols. Organized by students in the Doctor of Design Studies program, this conference investigates the impact of codes, concerned with mapping of environments, demarcation of legal territories, operational protocols of logistics and risk management, and codes of building and subtraction. By exposing the spatial and socio-cultural implications of micro-politics embedded in the hidden codes and protocols, we speculate about the potential agency of design practices mediating between processes of normalization, and the live, complex, and unpredictable ecologies of human habitation.

Buster Simpson, an artist active since the late 1960s, has worked on major infrastructure and planning projects, site-specific sculptures, museum installations, and community interventions. Simpson was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and attended the University of Michigan, where he received his MFA in 1969, and later, the Distinguished Alumni Award in Architecture and Design. Simpson is a recipient of numerous awards, including NEA fellowships and the Americans for the Arts Public Art Award in 2009. “I prefer working in public spaces. The complexity of any site is its asset, to distill, build upon, and reveal, the challenge is to sharpen the conjunction between poetry and place.” Simpson has exhibited at The New Museum, MoMA PS1, Seattle Art Museum, The Hirshhorn Museum, Capp Street Project, International Glass Museum, and a recent retrospective at the Frye Art Museum. Simpson’s work is included in numerous public commissions throughout North America. This University of Michigan Bicentennial event is presented with support from Chelsea River Gallery.

In 2017, Sy Adler, Associate Dean of the School of Urban and Public Affairs at Portland State University, and Jim Irvine, planner with the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development and Metro, interviewed a series of key planners and advocates involved with Oregon's Statewide Planning Goal 10, which focuses on planning for and accommodating needed housing in the state. Bob Clay is a planning consultant in Portland, Oregon who has held senior management positions in urban planning for city, state, regional, and federal agencies since 1973. For the city of Portland, he served as director of the Office of Housing Policy, chief planner for the Long Range Planning and Urban Design section of the Portland Bureau of Planning, and as supervising planner for the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. He has supervised projects in all aspects of land use planning, including growth management and housing policy, environmental protection, urban services delivery, and transit-oriented development. This oral history interview is part of "People and the Land," a collaboration between the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development and Portland State University. For the complete oral history collection, please visit http://pdxscholar.library.pdx.edu/planoregon_interviews/ The goal of this project is to document and preserve a record of Oregon’s land use program through the recording, transcription, collection and archiving of personal oral histories. The project is intended to enable Oregon’s statewide planning agency to make a significant, abiding contribution to the body of literature that records and analyzes the politics, policy, and practices that make Oregon's land use program unique.

From the Civil War to the recent troubles in Ferguson, St. Louis, Missouri is a city that has long been a site for conflict, division, and violence. It also has hosted an array of legal, political, social, and design experiments intended to transcend its contested present and past. With this forum, jointly mounted with the Sam Foxx School of Design at Washington University, we seek to stimulate a conversation about the city’s history and its present conditions, using methodologies and questions drawn from architecture, design, and planning as well as the arts, humanities and social sciences. The aim is to explore and debate issues of injustice, inequality, and racial exclusion in ways that have broader resonance for urban America and will open new terrains for constructive action. Topics include the history of modernist planning, the urban impacts of post-civil war politics and governance, the social and spatial correlates of racial exclusion, and the planning and design responses that have been proposed to counter these conditions. Open to the public with a keynote on Wednesday evening and subsequent panels showcasing the perspectives of a wide array of actors and institutions who have made cities such as St. Louis what they are today; closing on Friday with an array of GSD-based exhibitions, projects, and presentations from GSD students and faculty.

Theodoric the Great (~454-526) was king of the Ostrogoths during the time of the terminal decline of the Western Roman Empire. After wandering with his people through the Balkans, at times allied with the Eastern Empire, and at others, its enemy, he was invited by the Emperor Zeno to invade and conquer Italy on behalf of the Empire. He defeated the Germanic king Odovacar, who had himself deposed the last Emperor of the West, and established the Ostrogothic Kingdom in Italy. He became known as "King of the Goths and Romans in Italy", ruling according to the principle of civilitas. His reign was a time of stability and prosperity.
