Recover: Community Recovery Planning
Recovery is more than simply returning to our pre-disaster state, it is about recognizing opportunity for improvement while considering ways to mitigate against future disasters.
Our goal, post-disaster, will be to empower residents and business owners to become involved in reclaiming a safer and stronger Fairfax County.
Reviving the Community
By designing and understanding our recovery process in advance, we will be able to more quickly organize and take action to address community needs.
After a disaster, the County will coordinate the development of a Community Recovery Plan, which will set overarching post-disaster goals and objectives for the recovery process, and it will identify specific strategies and tactics to be undertaken (including specific reconstruction investments by County government, and potentially also recommendations for the same by state and federal governments and the private sector).
The Community Recovery Planning process will be inclusive of and encourage participation by both government and resident stakeholder groups.
By working together we can become more resilient, both physically and in spirit.
