Critical Areas Videos
City staff in May 2011 provided training about working in and around critical areas to builders, environmental consultants and other professionals. The three-hour plus session was videotaped, and the video was separated into segments addressing specific topics. Viewers can look at the sections most applicable to them at a given time. However, to get the complete picture, the whole training should be viewed.
The seminar follows a natural progression, including what critical areas are and what the city needs from permit applicants working on sites with critical areas. The session concludes with a description of various public and private stewardship examples, meant to encourage creativity among consultants and the clients they serve.
If you, or your organization, are interested in attending a live presentation of the critical areas training, please contact the Land Use Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-452-4188.
