Home Planning for Resilience Handbook
According to the Rockefeller Foundation, community resilience is defined as “the capacity of (communities) to function, so that the people living and working in (communities) – particularly the poor and vulnerable – survive and thrive no matter what stresses or shocks they encounter.” Land use planners and policy makers throughout Michigan are committed to thinking long-term about how change, trends and unanticipated shocks will impact their community. This Handbook is intended to be used as a reference tool by a diverse array of land use policy and planning practitioners in local efforts to bring about greater resilience in their community.
