Being able to withstand, recover, and thrive in the face of future shocks and stresses is a cornerstone of our community vision. As a result, City teams and City Council have committed to taking creative, proactive steps to increase the resilience of our community.
We understand that a successful, sustained response to our resilience challenges will require a proactive, whole-community approach. This means that in addition to our internal resilience planning and implementation activity, we are also committed to partnering with our residents, business owners, and other local stakeholders to build capacity across our diverse body of community members.
An important element of building our capacity is the launch of a citywide resilience collaborative to ensure whole-community ownership over meeting identified resilience targets.
