On Monday, August 8, the community is invited to a workshop to help Orlando develop a Resilience Plan to identify challenges and develop solutions to strengthen the city’s ability to overcome the potential impacts of natural disasters or manmade threats. This includes, but is not limited to, hurricanes and extreme heat; homelessness; affordable housing; access to free internet for all, and more.
Resident feedback is an important component to this planning that will help frame future policies and programs and improve the city’s resilience to hazards, changing conditions, and socioeconomic stresses.
Residents who are unable to attend in-person Monday, can participate by filling out a public survey, at Orlando.gov/ResiliencePlan
The Resilience Plan will also help residents know what to do, and where to go for assistance to ensure that everyone has the resources and support to “bounce back” after a disaster.
The draft plan is expected to be complete by late Fall 2022.
