State Seeks Community Feedback

State Seeks Community Feedback

Residents of the Eastern Carolina Council of Governments region are encouraged to attend upcoming public workshops to provide input on strategies and projects that aim to build future community resilience.

The regional in-person meetings are an opportunity for people who live or work in these areas to weigh in on project ideas to be included in a Regional Resilience Portfolio. These strategies can include natural or man-made infrastructure projects, housing, communications and outreach, planning/policy, analysis or assessments, or any other type of effort that supports the region’s ability to withstand floods, heat waves, and other climate hazards. 

Five to 10 prioritized strategies or projects will be included in the final portfolio, which will identify specific ways to help communities prepare for and recover from natural disasters and climate hazards.

An initiative of the Regional Resilience Portfolio Program, the portfolio currently in development is one of two final products being created in partnership with each of the nine regional councils of governments.
