The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) is the designated leader of the Long-Term Community Disaster Recovery Network, helping the counties, cities, townships, and villages impacted by the devastating Memorial Day tornadoes create a plan for recovery and resiliency.
Our Region is ready to move toward preparedness planning for all communities within the MVRPC planning boundaries to coordinate a cooperative strategic plan for resiliency. In August 2022, MVRPC held a meeting to kick off the resiliency planning effort. This included representatives from across the region, such as first responders, elected leaders, community practitioners, federal and state partners, and non-profits. The meeting set the stage for the plan framework and detailed core themes that will be incorporated into the recovery work.
The Regional Resiliency Plan will utilize the National Disaster Recovery Framework as a guide in drafting the plan. Working groups have been established to further support planning efforts. For more information or to be included in the planning process, please contact Elizabeth Baxter, MVRPC Manager, Disaster Recovery & Economic Development Planning, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regional Resiliency Plan Overview
While we cannot predict the type, timing, location, or scale of a disaster, we know that the Dayton Region is susceptible to some types of natural and human-related hazards. The Regional Resiliency Plan will take proactive steps toward resiliency and put plans and mechanisms in place to facilitate a cohesive, organized, and successful disaster recovery.
MVRPC will work with various partners across the Greater Dayton Region to:
- outline the stages of recovery
- assess various community plans and current partnerships in place to support recovery
- build a recovery network model (already in place from the 2019 tornado recovery)
- identify governmental, non-governmental, and private partners across the region to support recovery
- Identify strengths and risks within the region and understand how the members of our communities rely on these elements to support daily life
- Identify recovery activities for various areas (including economic, health & social service, housing, infrastructure, planning & development, and cultural & natural resources) to be carried out during each phase of recovery
This regional resiliency plan will help draft a framework that provides a consistent and organized approach to coordinate the recovery process regardless of the size of the event. This will assist jurisdictions in understanding how to leverage the capabilities, expertise and resources of recovery partners to support a community-wide recovery.
- Coordination & Collaboration
- Community & Stakeholder Engagement
