Background Discussion

Over the past 12 months, and through the Peril of Flood grant project, County staff has been partnering with TBRPC to address nature-based adaptation and community resiliency factors not currently addressed in county plans. The grant project afforded County staff the opportunity to facilitate regional discussions to develop consistent vulnerability and risk assessment methodology for public infrastructure and natural resources. Another benefit of the project was regional support of the integration of Tampa Bay Climate Science Advisory Panel (CSAP) sea level rise projections and compound flood risks into planning mechanisms including the County’s Comprehensive Plan. Moving forward over the next 18 months, this project will provide a building block to tie together the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), Local Mitigation Strategy Plan (LMS), Comprehensive Plan, and Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP).
