Friday, October 03, 2014, 1:45pmIn 2013, Colorado experienced epic flooding. Recovery in Boulder County, including in the devastated communities of Jamestown and Lyons, is still underway. Efforts have moved from emergency response to addressing short-term needs to developing longer-term recovery plans. Come learn about the county’s interdisciplinary and collaborative response to flood recovery. Wrap up with perspectives from the federal, state, and local levels that will emphasize the importance of sustainability and resiliency in recovery planning. Learning Objectives: 1. Approach to short-term local emergency response and community recovery priorities; 2. Approach to multijurisdictional recovery planning along creek and road corridors; 3.

Permitting the Recovery from a 1,000 Year Rain Event: This segment will provide an overview of issues and challenges for rebuilding, including tools developed for the interim response such as the temporary building permit moratorium; new “hazard mitigation review” process; and interim permits. It will address other recovery land use needs, such as housing and debris drop-off sites and will contrast the county’s experiences with fire and flood recovery. Flood Replacement Housing in Boulder County: This segment will describe the community-based process for housing recovery in Lyons and Jamestown.

Methodologies: “Colorado Disaster Recovery and the Planner’s Role” will be presented in four segments, with segment one introducing the planning themes and segment four summarizing and applying them as lessons learned. Each segment will use a panel discussion format, including a moderator and 2-3 other panelists.

All of the presentations are intended to describe diverse experiences and share information about flood recovery across multiple disciplines and roles, thereby avoiding the promotion or bias toward any one idea, approach, or outcome. Each presentation will include its educational objective.
