State of Florida Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan Initiative Hank Erikson CSA International, Inc SW Kansas Avenue Jupiter, FL (850)
Presentation Topics Florida’s Planning Framework and the Central Role of the Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP) The PDRP Pilot Project, including: –The Proposed Components of the PDRP Questions
Integrated Planning Florida has 5 major plans that involve mitigation (risk reduction) and/or land use. The Local Comprehensive Plan Policy plan that defines a community’s desired growth patterns (state requirement of all incorporated municipalities and counties) The Coastal Element (of the Comprehensive Plan) Policy plan with explicit focus on protection of the coastal environment and communities from natural hazards (state requirement for coastal communities) Policy plan with explicit focus on protection of the coastal environment and communities from natural hazards (state requirement for coastal communities)
Integrated Planning, Cont’d The County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) Operational plan that defines the organizational structure, chain of command and operational procedure for county EM during preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. (federal requirement) The Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) Federally required local mitigation plan with vulnerability analysis, goals and objectives and mitigation projects. (federal requirement) The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan Required plan for coastal communities, which covers the post-disaster recovery period (requirement is not enforced).
All of These Plans Integrate Through Mitigation C omp Plan/ Coastal Elem CEMPLMS PDRP Mitigation Projects Vulnerability and Risk Analysis Land Use/ Mitigation Policies Mitigation Process Short-Term Recovery Decisions Land Use/ Mitigation Policies Vulnerability & Risk Analysis The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan is the only plan suited for the Integration of elements from each of the other plans Mitigation Projects
The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan Why the interest in PDRPs? –The CEMP and the LMS are required plans that deal primarily with short-term disaster related issues. –The Comp Plan and the Coastal Element deal with long-term issues but are not disaster oriented plans. The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan is a long-term recovery plan
The Requirement for the Post Disaster Redevelopment Plan is contained in the portion of the statute covering the Coastal Element of the Comprehensive Plan. The statute (§ (7)(l) F.S.) requires that coastal communities develop a PDRP and encourages the in-land communities to do so. But, it does not assign a to state agency the responsibility for reviewing the plans, and It does not set up standards for developing the plan.
Renewed interest in PDRPs after the destruction experienced during 2004 and Because there is no guidance, each community defines the requirements differently. The purpose of the PDRP Initiative is to address the legislative short comings and achieve more consistency among the plans.

Components of a PDRP Draft PDRP designed to be a single, stand-alone guide to aid decision makers during the disaster recovery period. Implementation Plan Relevant Policies from other local plans Ordinances and Protocols for Post-Disaster Recovery and Redevelopment Institutional Capabilities Assessment
PDRP Components, Cont’d. Vulnerability Assessment –Infrastructure and Public Facilities Vulnerability Analysis –Housing Vulnerability Analysis –Economic Vulnerability Analysis –Social Vulnerability Analysis –Historic District Vulnerability Analysis Post-Disaster Redevelopment Goals and Objectives Description of Recovery/Redevelopment Issues (Issues that unless dealt with may become barriers to recovery and/or represent opportunities to rebuild in a more sustainable fashion)
PDRP Components, Cont’d. Action Plan (initiatives for each identified issue) –Actions/initiatives to be done prior to a disaster, organization responsible and timeframe. –Actions/initiatives to be done after a disaster, organization responsible and timeframe. Communications Plan for post-disaster, long- term recovery Financing Long-term Recovery
PHASE 2 : Prepare PDRPs for pilot community(s) Prepare a Case Study for each demonstration project, documenting the strengths and weaknesses of each approach Year 2 –
PHASE 3 : Revise the PDRP Standards and Planning Process as Needed Based on the Demonstrations Publish PDRP Best Practices Guidebook Provide Draft Legislation to Close the Loop on the PDRP Requirement Hold Regional Workshops to Present the Standards Initiate a Competitive Grant Program Year 3 –
