Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan for Leon County

In order to better prepare for the aftermath of a major or catastrophic disaster, particularly natural disasters, Leon County Sheriff's OfficeLeon County in conjunction with the Leon County Sheriff's Department is developing a Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP). Over the next year, county and city planning and emergency management entities as well as a number of community Stakeholders will be developing a countywide PDRP. The PDRP will be coordinated with the Tallahassee-Leon County Comprehensive Plan, the Leon County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, and the Tallahassee-Leon County Local Mitigation Strategy as well as other relevant planning documents. The Apalachee Regional Planning Council working as the primary consultant for the County will be conducting outreach and working with various community stakeholders to develop the plan.

Development of a PDRP will provide a framework for intermediate and long-term recovery and mitigation after a natural disaster. The PDRP can help reduce future community vulnerability to disasters and allow for a more successful community recovery from disasters. The PDRP will identify operational strategies, roles and responsibilities and policies for implementing the plan so that decisions about long-term recovery and redevelopment of the community after a disaster are guided and have context. The plan will emphasize opportunities for hazard mitigation to prevent damage when disasters happen and make recommendations for community improvements that support and are consistent with the local Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, the local comprehensive plan and the Local Mitigation Strategy; and which include participation opportunities for citizens and stakeholders. Recovery topics will include sustainable land use, housing repair and reconstruction, business resumption and economic redevelopment, infrastructure restoration, financial considerations, and short-term recovery actions that affect long-term redevelopment as well as other long-term recovery issues identified by the community. Details about PDRP development and process can be found at the link.
