seeks to identify coastal vulnerabilities and develop proactive strategies
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – “Resilient Brevard” is a project to increase Brevard County’s local resilience to the impacts of flooding.
“Resilient Brevard” seeks to identify coastal vulnerabilities and develop proactive strategies, policies, and a recommended plan of action to minimize and mitigate the effects of various types of flooding.
The East Central Florida Regional Planning Council (ECFRPC) is under contract with Brevard County to launch this effort.
The project is focused on five general areas:
■ Economic resilience
■ Public services & safety
■ Resilient development
■ Public health and equity
■ Resilient nature-based practices
The survey is seeking 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 natural hazards, such as flooding, 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?
Please take the survey by visiting www.perilofflood.net/
The website also contains a presentation with more information about the survey and a glossary of terms used in the survey. The survey will be available through Friday, January 22, 2021.
The first virtual public workshop will be held on February 2 at 6 p.m. to discuss the survey findings. A second virtual workshop will be held in March to update the community on strategy development and policy recommendations.
