Over the past several months we have been working on recovering from the June 2013 flood. The City has been working with many partner organizations on the recovery efforts
, which range from keeping City services running to rebuilding infrastructure to ensuring flood victims have access to the appropriate resources going forward.
As a part of our long-term community restoration, rehabilitation and resiliency work, a flood recovery framework
was developed in 2013. The framework will be used over the next several years to guide us while we work towards a full recovery from this flood, and prepare for the next one.
Research has shown that successful recovery happens when we use a holistic, community-based approach to addressing issues in the built, economic, natural and social environments. Calgarians have demonstrated that we are willing to work together as a community to recover from disastrous events.
We will need to continue to work together and support our neighbours and local businesses while we continue to work on many of the flood related projects
that are still outstanding.
