What makes a County resilient? What does a Resiliency Plan for a County look like? New York Green is holding a Public Informational Open House on Thursday, March 12, to discuss the development of a Countywide Resiliency Plan for Genesee County.
The Public Open House will be held on Thursday, March 12, from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council (GO ART!) on 201 E. Main Street in Batavia.
The Resiliency Plan will evaluate how to keep Genesee County communities strong and able to withstand challenges such as aging infrastructure, water shortages, unemployment, floods, disease outbreaks, and other types of shocks and stressors.
The Resiliency Plan is being developed in partnership between New York Green and Genesee County, with funding from the NYS Department of State.
Information about the Resiliency Plan, topics to be evaluated in the Plan, and opportunities for public participation will be provided at the Public Open House. The Plan is in the early stages of development, and your input can shape the direction of the Plan.
It will be an open house format, and people are encouraged to stop by at any time, for any duration, to provide input on the Resiliency Plan. Please share your comments, questions, and concerns. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
