Urban Land Institute Northern CO Resiliency Report

In 2014, the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado and other sponsors brought the Urban Land Institute to Northern Colorado to evaluate the resiliency of the area in the aftermath of the 2013 floods.

From the report:
“When faced with events such as the floods of September 2013, the spirit of self-sufficiency proved key to Colorado’s recovery. Time and again, the panel witnessed stories that evidenced creativity, self-reliance, agility, and kinship in getting the region back on its feet in record time. It could be argued that what the panel heard and saw in the three sponsoring communities was resilience at its best.

The true test will be to see if these communities can summon and apply the same strengths in the calm before the next storm to implement long-term physical, financial, and organizational measures of prevention and protection.”

In the end, communities should emerge not as if nothing ever happened, but actually stronger and better able to withstand greater shocks in the future. This report will share a range of the panel’s observations, lessons learned, and recommendations, all in the pursuit of a more resilient northern Colorado.”
