I am so excited to get my Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) car racing license! I spent an action packed weekend at Pocono Raceway, learning the ins and outs of sports car racing, and getting out there on the track with some amazing cars and drivers. I managed to get through the weekend without trading any paint, spinning out of control, or breaking the car. What a blast!
On April 16, 2015, Lois participated in the Long Island Coastal Resiliency Summit, at the Land Use and Sustainable Development Law Institute at Touro Law School. This conference focused on the role of local law and policy solutions, including the newly enacted Community Risk and Resiliency Act, to the threats of climate change on Long Island. The Summit brought together local, state, and national leaders, as well as planners, land use practitioners, and legal scholars to explore the challenges Long Islanders face as we move from community resiliency planning to implementation. Smart growth efforts and local waterfront development projects were discussed in the context of developing regional best practices for Long Island to deal with the threats posed to our Island from extreme weather events, rising sea level, and other effects of climate change.
