Leadership in preparing for future impacts of weather reaches beyond city limits

At its November 25, 2019, Board of Directors meeting, the non-profit organization Resiliency Florida appointed City of St. Augustine Commissioner Roxanne Horvath to serve on the board.  Resiliency Florida is dedicated to helping communities in their efforts to plan and adapt for the future impacts of weather and sea level rise.

The City of St. Augustine has emerged across the state of Florida as a leader in the resiliency efforts to defend against sea level rise and has established itself an example to follow when it comes to taking action to protect infrastructure and seeking appropriations funding and federal reimbursement funding for mitigation and hardening.

“Commissioner Horvath’s appointment to Resiliency Florida is just another example of how people at the state level recognize the work we are doing here as a community,” commented City Manager John Regan.  “It really says something about the impact of the work of our elected officials when they are appointed to serve on a board such as this one.”

Over the course of Commissioner Horvath’s career as an architect, prior to and including her time as City Commissioner, she has demonstrated her commitment to resiliency through the design of commercial and residential projects, as well as municipal improvements and restoration efforts such as the Bayfront Connectivity Project.

Commissioner Horvath currently serves on the Northeast Florida Regional Council (NEFRC) as past president and has served on NEFRC’s board as president (2016 to 2017) and board member. Additionally, Commissioner Horvath served as president of the Policy Board on the Florida Regional Councils Association from 2018 to 2019.
