Report Release:
Rebuilding with Resilience

After two years working with the cities and states implementing the winning Rebuild projects, we are happy to share the lessons learned and the policy hurdles regarding how government can design and construct infrastructure projects that deliver multiple community benefits. 

Rebuild released a report and held a policy discussion earlier this month in Washington, DC. The report, “Rebuilding with Resilience,” was created in collaboration with Georgetown Climate Center and The Rockefeller Foundation. Check out the report, summary, presentations, and a video recording of the release>>

Sandy Region Updates

Bridgeport, CT - The project team met last month for a week long internal workshop in New Orleans to address Bridgeport's resilience plan. The workshop was critical in developing the appropriate methodologies for testing and improving initial concepts for surge protection, stormwater networks, buffers, egress, connections, building adaptations, and development. On December 13, the team will work in an “open studio” format so residents can observe design and planning work in action. This will be followed by an open house and a public hearing on the pilot project identification. Learn more>>

Hunts Point, NY - The presentation and key findings handout from last month's public meeting are now available in English and Spanish. At the meeting, the project team heard directly from residents and businesses about how flooding, power outages, and other emergencies affect Hunts Point. They also previewed the types of energy and flooding technologies that will be explored in the next stage of the project. The next two meetings will take place in early 2017.
