08.19.14 | Housing and Community Risk Workshop

ABAG/BCDC Housing and Community Risk Workshop

Please join us for the unveiling of our Bay Area Housing and Community Risk Assessment strategies, developed in response to a regional vulnerability assessment and community profiles ABAG and BCDC have developed to identify our most vulnerable housing and communities to earthquake and climate change issues. These strategies focus on how we can improve existing and future housing stock to help keep residents in their own communities following a disaster.

When: Tuesday, August 26, 9 am-noon

Where: ABAG Auditorium, at 101 Eighth St, Joseph P. Bort MetroCenter, Oakland, CA (across the street from Lake Merritt BART)

RSVP: danab@abag.ca.gov by Friday August 22.

This is an exciting time for both seismic and climate change issues, with many efforts going on around the region. These strategies can help organize the region around concrete actions that both regional agencies and local jurisdictions can take to improve regional resilience, address climate change, and promote safe and smart growth in our future. Your input and expertise on these strategies is critical at this step. These strategies should be locally implementable and based in a strong understanding of the characteristics and conditions that make housing and community members resilient and capable of recovery after a hazard occurs.
