Each November, thirty countries around the globe come together to celebrate World Town Planning Day to promote the role planners and planning play in creating livable, resilient communities.
Resiliency Planning has become an ever-increasing topic of importance. Especially in vulnerable communities which are impacted at a greater rate. Across the US, natural disasters affect 218 million people and claim 68,000 lives per year. In fact, Florida holds spots two through five on PolicyGenius’ list of cities most vulnerable to climate change. Infrastructure resilience is an on-going process that requires community engagement, inclusive design, and climate change innovation.
CHW’s experienced planners are ready to work side-by-side with members of the community to ensure Florida cities can adapt to changing conditions; withstanding and recovering quickly from natural disasters.
