Lake County Resilience Action Plan
Lake County, Colorado
In April 2022 Freeport McMoRan signed a contract with Better City to develop a community lead Resilience Action Plan for Lake County, Colorado. The objective of the action plan was to identify mitigated risks and strategies that would enhance overall resiliency.
The risks identified were both natural disasters and human-made disruptions, such as the closure of a large employer or shifts in population trends. This plan prioritizes five risks and outlines strategic pre-incident actions to enhance Lake County’s resilience to them. The goal is for the community to anticipate, withstand and bounce bank from or avoid shocks.
- Focuses toward community connectivity, involving the youth as leaders and creating a county-wide Equity Diversity and Inclusion plan
- Efforts to expand commercial tax base
- Climate resilience tactics
