Flood Resilience

Resilience is the ability of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and system within St. Augustine to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of acute shocks (a sudden, sharp event that can threaten the city) and chronic stresses (stresses weaken the fabric of the city on a day-to-day basis) they experience. 

The City of St. Augustine faces many challenges when it comes to both coastal and rain driven flooding, as a majority of the city is located in a flood plain. The City of St. Augustine is proactively identifying areas of risks as it relates to the inevitable effects of sea level rise.

Back Bay Study Public Meeting Scheduled Wednesday, February 22 from 6:00PM-8:00PM in the Alcazar Room at 75 King Street, St. Augustine, FL.
