We face many challenges: economic uncertainty, lack of affordable housing, inequality, climate changes, threats to institutions we rely on, generational change, changing migration patterns, and others. How do we respond? Plan? Adapt? Change is inevitable.

Building resiliency into our plans and systems builds neighborhoods and communities that can thrive and last. And it allows people in those places to live and work in a more productive, safe, and reliable way. To be resilient is to recognize the strength of a place’s culture, character, social structures, and local assets while creating systems and structures that anticipate and allow for change.

Cities can’t be resilient on their own – while local government and institutions can be leaders in building resilience, the neighborhoods and people within the cities must be purposefully included - all working together as integral to success.
