Outreach Product First Draft – Shoreline Protection Quick Guide

Attached is the first draft of my outreach product, a front-and-back flyer for coastal property owners about the shoreline protection and permitting process in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The front page highlights key steps and major components of the process, from identifying potential shoreline management options to implementing the project. It will also include contact info (phone numbers, and in an electronic pdf version, hyperlinks) for additional resources.

The back features two diagrams. One depicts the various agencies and regulations that protect different physical elements of the shoreline, and the other illustrates the steps of the permit review process.

I anticipate substantial edits and changes over the next few weeks as I prepare my final draft. These include:

  • I have yet to receive feedback from stakeholders, and plan to make changes upon receiving their comments suggestions.
  • I plan to adjust font, colors, images, and general aesthetics moving forward once I consult with those with more design experience
  • The two diagrams on the backside are from existing products created by Fairfax County and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. I plan to either edit or recreate them for the final draft so as to better fit with the general theme/aesthetics.
