Improving building resilience takes public education and policies that balance safety, economic preservation and cost.
About this event
Improving building resilience takes public education and policies that balance safety, economic preservation, and cost. Community leaders and public policy experts discuss approaches to do just that. We will also discuss financial incentives – lending practices, insurance discounts, tax and other measures – that can motivate and reward owners to invest in resilience.
