R         Resilient Communities 

Creating resilient communities together.

Resilient communities have:

  • Great mayors, first selectman/town managers that understand the full benefits of resilient projects.
  • Metrics to measure economic payback from environmentally – friendly projects.
  • Community members that actively participate in local activities. 
  • A consistent and effective mechanism for town/city leadership and community members to work together to improve resiliency.  
  • Established groups that understand and support sustainability from both an environmental and economic perspective and include local Green Drinks chapters, US Green Building Council chapters, green businesses like home energy auditors and green electricity providers.
