If a major disaster damages or destroys your home, what would you and your family need to recover? What are our community's critical concerns for post-disaster recovery and redevelopment?
Pinellas County’s Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP) provides guidance for long-term recovery after a major disaster. A major disaster in this context, is defined as a natural or manmade event that could cause massive-scale reconstruction of our buildings, community facilities and infrastructure; redevelopment of neighborhoods; and or recovery of our families and businesses.
Pinellas County’s Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan was first developed in 1994 and last updated in 2012. We are currently in the process of identifying our community’s vulnerabilities which will help inform and update the actions and strategies identified within the PDRP. These actions and strategies will guide our recovery and redevelopment efforts, in case we are ever faced with a major disaster. This current effort to identify our communities risks and vulnerabilities, is funded by FY20-21 Resilience Planning Grant, provided by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection through the Resilient Coastlines Program.
Your feedback on this survey is essential to understand our communities’ vulnerabilities especially with respect to our capacity to recover in case of a major disaster. Your response will improve our understanding of the community’s needs and priorities, and guide us in identifying appropriate policies, actions, and mitigation strategies that best fit our community’s needs and post-disaster redevelopment goals.
