Clay Post Disaster Redevelopment Plan
The record-setting hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 underscored the need for Florida communities to be prepared to face the tremendous, wide-ranging challenges of re-building after a disaster. Those years highlighted the value of pre-planning for the long-term redevelopment phase of disaster. A Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP) is now a requirement of all Florida coastal counties and municipalities, and is encouraged for inland communities. The PDRP covers policies, operational strategies, and roles and responsibilities for implementation which will guide decisions that affect long-term recovery and redevelopment of the community after a disaster. The PDRP emphasizes the opportunities for hazard mitigation and community improvement and together with the goals of the Clay County Comprehensive Plan works to redevelop a more sustainable and disaster resilient community. This planning process is undertaken with participation from various community stakeholders. For further information, please visit our website at www.claycountygov.com/pdrp.htm.
