Cook County seeks public input on making your home, business, and neighborhood more resilient
Community resilience workshops scheduled to focus on disaster resilience, including flood prevention
Workshops piloted for Alsip, Blue Island, Calumet City, Calumet Park, Crestwood, Dolton, Robbins, Riverdale
Has your home or business in one of the eight municipalities above, been impacted by extreme weather, especially rainstorms that cause floods and related damage like the one that happened in April 2013? If so, Cook County, on behalf of the Northeastern Illinois Resilience Partnership (which includes Cook County, City of Chicago, DuPage County and State of Illinois) invites you to attend any one of our community meetings to share your experiences and ideas about making your home, business, and neighborhood more resilient.
We are defining regional resilience as the ability of a region to maintain and improve quality of life in the face of hazards, stressors, or shocks by reducing vulnerabilities across the interacting built, natural, and social systems, and by increasing the capacity to adapt over time.
We look forward to your participation at any one of our upcoming community workshops, scheduled as follows:
