Creating a roadmap back to a strong community after a natural disaster.
What is the project?
Natural disaster can happen anytime. The five counties that make up the Portland Metropolitan Region are working together to develop a framework to guide rebuilding, redevelopment, and recovery efforts following a disaster. The framework looks beyond the disaster event itself, to imagine life in the weeks, months, and years after the disaster; to seize the opportunity to creatively re-design our region to be even stronger and more resilient for the future.
The project is a collaboration between public, private, and nonprofit sector stakeholders, led by the five-county, multi-state Regional Disaster Preparedness Organization (RDPO).
Who is involved?
What will the Framework Accomplish?
The project began in 2017 with organization of the planning team and securing Hagerty Consulting for support. In 2018, Framework development will begin. In spring 2019, the project will conclude with writing and delivery of the Framework document and supporting guidance, with tools for further jurisdiction-specific recovery planning.
Stakeholder Engagement Meetings
The project conducted stakeholder engagement meetings in May 2018. Please refer to our summary of results from these sessions. The outcomes of these sessions are now informing the Recovery Goals for the regional framework and will feed into subsequent planning sessions this summer and fall.
