Commissioners Accept ResilientLee Plan


On Tuesday the Lee Board of County Commissioners voted to accept the ResilientLee Recovery and Resilience Plan. In December 2022, months after Hurricane Ian made landfall, the Board approved the formation of Long-Term Task Force.

The eight recovery branches are:

  • Planning & Capacity
  • Economic Recovery
  • Education & Workforce
  • Health & Social Services
  • Infrastructure
  • Housing
  • Natural Resources
  • Cultural Resources

The plan contains 43 core initiatives identified as medium- and long-term needs to help assist the community through recovery and encourage resilience from future impacts of natural and human-made disasters.

Additionally, a Universe of Resilience Funding Opportunities has been created to help assist entities working on these initiatives to find grant or other supplemental funding opportunities to offset the costs of this work.

  1. I don’t recommend scrolling through the 232-page Plan; it’ll depress or enrage you.

    A bunch of bureaucratese… early learning, lifelong learning, creating mobile health clinics, supporting public art while rebuilding,
    infrastructure resiliency, emergency planning, yadda yadda yadda.

    I’m not saying none of that is needed or useful, but I suspect the average person on the street thought that $1.1 billion might have gone to other things.
