Accelerating resiliency planning in communities across the Commonwealth

Integrating Resiliency Language into Existing Plans

Integrating Resiliency Language into Existing PlansOur Latest White Paper

Our mission at Resilient Virginia is to help communities accelerate resiliency planning so they can remain a vibrant place to live for years to come. To this effort, we partnered with University of Virginia’s Environmental Resilience Institute in January 2022 to host a group of student interns during their J-Term. These students identified resiliency language integrated in existing Comprehensive Plans, Hazard Mitigation Plans, and Master Plans from communities across Virginia and one in New Hampshire.

Communities they looked at were Blacksburg, VA; Roanoke, VA; Norfolk, VA; Virginia Beach, VA; Central Shenandoah Planning District (VA); and Nashua, NH. It is our hope that these examples can help your community begin the process of adding resiliency language into your own plans.
