South Florida Classmates Meet in Miami to Discuss Climate Change


On Saturday evening, March 16, 8 of our Classmates in South Florida gathered with their spouses and significant others, as well as members of the Princeton Club of South Florida, to listen to entertaining and informative presentations on "Planning for Adaptation to Climate Change" with our Classmate, Andres Duany, and his wife and partner, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk '72. The event took place at "The Academy Building" of Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company located in the "Little Havana" district of Miami with an open bar, catered Lebanese and Palestinian cuisine, and lots of networking and catching up on old times for nearly 4 hours. The main thrusts of Andres' and Liz's presentations were that urban planning needs to be done now, since areas of South Florida and further north are threatened by rising seas inundating coastal shores and salinization of the aquifer. Better advance planning needs to be done for handling future hurricanes and tropical storms, both before and after they hit. The event was advertised as a non-fundraiser, casual chance to reconnect with Classmates and fellow Princetonians, and it proved to be that and much more, as valuable information from true experts was presented in a fascinating way. Classmates who attended: Marshall Burack (Pinecrest), Andres Duany (Coral Gables), Jim Hitch (Coral Gables), Kirk Liddell (wintering in Wellington), Bill Metzger (Palm Beach), Tom Potts (Bonita Springs), Steve Saner (Naples), and Kevin Warner (Delray Beach). Joining Liz from the Class of '72 was Helena Novakova (Miami). Photos from the event can be seen here.


The event attracted a total of 34 interested participants and was superbly arranged by Jim Hitch. Congratulations, Jim, on a terrific Class event!
