Accelerating resiliency planning in communities across the Commonwealth

Resilient Communities: A CommunityMatters Conference Call

Our communities are constantly changing. Most changes are gradual and predictable—a new store opens on Main Street, newcomers come to town and priorities shift. But, sometimes change is abrupt, unexpected—a major natural disaster or an epidemic. How can your city or town best prepare for unanticipated change? What will help your community respond to challenges not only to bounce back, but to become stronger than ever?

Michael Crowley, senior program officer, Institute for Sustainable Communities, and Christine Morris, chief resilience officer with the city of Norfolk, Virginia, joined CommunityMatters for an hour-long conference call on January 22, 2015. Listen to the archived audio for ideas about and lessons learned from building resilient communities, or browse the presenter notes from this event for additional resources.
