DeLand, FL - Volusia County’s Environmental Management Division is asking residents to complete a resilience survey to get their opinions on ways to address sea-level rise. The division is working on an initiative that will develop strategies to help residents and local government officials plan for the impacts of flooding, storm surge, and sea-level rise.
The deadline to complete the survey is February 28, 2021. The link to the survey can be found at metroquestsurvey.com. Survey takers will be asked to rank their values, rate strategies, and identify where public resources should be focused to increase community resilience. County staff will use the responses to identify resilience measures for consideration.
Information gathered in the survey will help determine the best ways for individuals, communities, institutions, and businesses to plan, sustain, adapt, recover, improve and grow collaboratively from specific events like flooding, a heatwave, or chronic, long-term stresses such as water and food shortages.
