Action Plan Development


The county will develop an Action Plan, with input from the community, to identify the unmet needs resulting from the hurricane and strategies to address them. Public participation is strongly encouraged and will be conducted through several means, such as surveys and a community engagement series. Once those are completed, a draft of the Action Plan will be published for the community to review and provide feedback.
