What’s likely to linger in the aftermath of the global COVID crisis are the impacts on local and regional governments that provide the services citizens experience most directly in their daily lives. Faced with budget shortfalls, growing to-do lists for routine tasks delayed by the emergency, and general uncertainty about a “new normal,” how might governments address the uncertainty and respond effectively to the challenges? That’s the goal of our Pandemic Toolkit. Join this session with the toolkit’s lead authors, Hazel Borys and Susan Henderson to explore the applications.

Hazel Borys is President of PlaceMakers, LLC in the USA and PlaceMakers, Inc., in Canada, city planning firms working to advance the livability conversation. Borys and her team are passionate about walkable urban and rural places, and believe that diverse, character-rich neighborhoods can actually make us happier. She guides governments through policy and land use law reforms and helps developers build livable places. Hazel is an engineer with an MBA, specializing in finance and marketing. She is coauthor of the Pandemic Toolkit, CodesStudy.org, and CodeScore.org, PlaceShakers.com blogger, and serves on the boards of the Transect Codes Council and the Winnipeg Foundation.

As a PlaceMakers’ Principal, Susan Henderson has led numerous code reform projects across North America. Susan is a CNU, AIA, and LEED Accredited Professional, and brings an expertise in sustainability to form-based code writing. She is co-author of the Lean Code Tool, a contributor to the SmartCode & Manual, and author of the Pandemic Toolkit and SmartCode Landscape Module. Susan is a founding faculty of CNU’s Project for Code Reform, assisting local governments in determining their local capacity and crafting code reform to meet the context. Susan serves as a board member on the CNU and Transect Codes Council.

This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
