The concept of resilience has become popular recently, and definitions for the term vary. However, the concept incorporates the recognition that disasters or other impactful events--such as the September 2013 flooding in Longmont--will happen, and that how communities prepare for and react to those events can make a difference. The ability to react to and incorporate ways to more easily bounce back from the next time something bad happens is a critical component of resilience.

Be Prepared

Preparation for a future event, such as flooding, can include preparing and protecting people, property and the environment, as well as creating plans that can be implemented at the first sign of a disaster event.

Resiliencia para Todos / Resiliency for All

Resiliencia para Todos / Resiliency for All (RFA) is a City of Longmont collaboration with local municipalities and BoCo Strong. The project comes in the aftermath of the 2013 flooding throughout Boulder County.

Boulder County Collaborative

The City of Longmont is the lead agency for the Boulder County Collaborative, a group of local municipal and county governments that formed in response to the 2013 floods to decide together where to strategically direct federal CDBG disaster recovery funds to best address the greatest and most pressing housing and infrastructure needs. The Collaborative created the Resilient Design Performance Standard for Infrastructure and Dependent Facilities to guide the design and implementation of recovery projects in the region. This standard leverages every capital project as an opportunity to incrementally move Boulder County toward a more resilient future.
