Resilient Jacksonville Community Meeting


Jacksonville’s vision for resilience looks towards the future and embraces change. Even as the city faces new, increasing, and uncertain risks, we believe Jacksonville’s best days are ahead. Jacksonville will draw from its essential characteristics as a welcoming city, a water city, and a growing and spacious city to build a resilient future for generations to come.

CITY RESILIENCE is the ability of city systems to adapt and thrive in the face of acute shocks (sudden, extreme events that threaten a community) and chronic stresses (long-term pressures that weaken the fabric of a community over time). Often, the impact of an acute shock, like a hurricane, is made worse by chronic stresses, like aging infrastructure or poverty. A resilience approach plans holistically for a safe and thriving future for the city’s people, economy, and physical environment.

Jacksonville is developing a comprehensive city resilience strategy to guide policies, projects, and programs that will help Jacksonville prepare for, adapt to, and quickly rebound from acute shocks and chronic stresses the city may face. This strategy will be developed in consultation with city departments, relevant independent authorities, city council, the business community, stakeholder groups, and Jacksonville residents.
