Venice residents asked to take resilience survey on flood risk

Through a study funded by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Resilient Coastlines Program, the City of Venice is working with Taylor Engineering to perform resilience planning. This project includes a vulnerability assessment for City infrastructure. This assessment consists of three analyses:

  • Exposure – the amount of contact an asset has with a source of stress
  • Sensitivity – the degree of impact and whether there are existing sources of stress; and
  • Adaptive capacity – the asset’s ability to adjust, repair or respond

After this assessment has been conducted, adaption and resilient strategies will be developed for at-risk structures.

The City wants to hear from its citizens, in order to create a more resilient future. Please assist the City by completing a brief Resilience Survey on Understanding Your Flood Risk. This survey can be found at: https://arcg.is/u05Hb.
