Planning for Community Resiliency: Looking Beyond Hazard Response

September 9, 2021 1:40 pm
2021 Fall Conference

The past year and a half have underscored the need for community resilience planning. Who could have predicted a global pandemic paired with localized issues of earthquakes and severe droughts? Yet frameworks of resiliency thinking allow planners to do just that – prepare for and adapt to the unexpected, aiming not just to survive but to thrive. Join Long Range Planners and partners from the Greater Salt Lake Municipal Services District (MSD) as they explore:

  • What it means to be resilient community
  • How planning for resiliency differs between a more traditional municipality and a campus setting
  • What lessons MSD planners have learned during the past year of planning in diverse Salt Lake County communities.

The presentation will be followed by a group discussion of the future of resilience planning in Utah and the tools that may help regional planners lead the state forward.
