creating an economically and environmentally resilient community
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Natural Resources Management has launched “Resilient Brevard,” a project to develop proactive strategies, policies, and a plan of action to increase resilience to the impacts of climate change.
“Resilient Brevard” seeks to identify coastal vulnerabilities and provide local policy recommendations to minimize and mitigate the effects of flooding, storm surge, and sea-level rise.
The project, launched by Brevard County and the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council (ECFRPC), is focused on five general areas:
■ Economic resilience
■ Public services & safety
■ Resilient development
■ Public health and equity
■ Resilient nature-based practices
We want your input on creating an economically and environmentally resilient community.
■ What about the quality of life in Brevard County matters most to you?
■ What are the impacts of climate on your quality of life?
■ What are the vulnerabilities we need to prepare for over the next 50-75 years?
■ What are the most appropriate proactive strategies to make our community more resilient?
■ Where would you apply those strategies in the unincorporated areas of Brevard County?
Take a short survey by visiting www.perilofflood.net/resilient-brevard
The survey will be available through Friday, January 22, 2021.
Two virtual public workshops will be held to discuss the survey findings and to update the community on strategy development and policy recommendations.
