Presentation Topics
  • Florida’s Planning Framework and the Central Role of the Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP)
  • The PDRP Pilot Project, including:
    • The Proposed Components of the PDRP
  • Questions
integrated planning
Integrated Planning

Florida has 5 major plans that involve mitigation (risk reduction) and/or land use.

  • The Local Comprehensive Plan
      • Policy plan that defines a community’s desired growth patterns (state requirement of all incorporated municipalities and counties)
  • The Coastal Element (of the Comprehensive Plan)
      • Policy plan with explicit focus on protection of the coastal environment and communities from natural hazards (state requirement for coastal communities)
integrated planning cont d
Integrated Planning, Cont’d
  • The County Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP)
      • Operational plan that defines the organizational structure, chain of command and operational procedure for county EM during preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. (federal requirement)
  • The Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS)
      • Federally required local mitigation plan with vulnerability analysis, goals and objectives and mitigation projects. (federal requirement)
  • The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan
      • Required plan for coastal communities, which covers the post-disaster recovery period (requirement is not enforced).
All of These Plans Integrate Through Mitigation

The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan is the only plan suited for the

the post disaster redevelopment plan
The Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan
  • Why the interest in PDRPs?
    • The CEMP and the LMS are required plans that deal primarily with short-term disaster related issues.
    • The Comp Plan and the Coastal Element deal with long-term issues but are not disaster oriented plans.
  • ThePost-Disaster Redevelopment Plan is a long-term recovery plan
The Requirement for the Post Disaster Redevelopment Plan is contained in the portion of the statute covering the Coastal Element of the Comprehensive Plan.
  • The statute (§163.3177(7)(l) F.S.) requires that coastal communities develop a PDRP and encourages the in-land communities to do so.
  • But, it does not assign a to state agency the responsibility for reviewing the plans, and
  • It does not set up standards for developing the plan.
Renewed interest in PDRPs after the destruction experienced during 2004 and 2005.
  • Because there is no guidance, each community defines the requirements differently.
  • The purpose of the PDRP Initiative is to address the legislative short comings and achieve more consistency among the plans.
State of Florida

Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan Initiative

Develop PDRP Standards & Planning Process

Conduct Demonstration Projects


Launch Competitive Grant Program

Phase 1


Phase 2


Phase 3


Year 1 - 2007


Form “PRDP Focus Group”

Hold Focus Group Meetings for input of best practices

Review Literature on PDRPs

Compile / Evaluate Existing Community PDRPs

Prepare Draft PDRP Guidelines

Include “standards” & “suggested planning processes” to serve as guide for local PDRPs

  • Action Plan (initiatives for each identified issue)
    • Actions/initiatives to be done prior to a disaster, organization responsible and timeframe.
    • Actions/initiatives to be done after a disaster, organization responsible and timeframe.
  • Communications Plan for post-disaster, long-term recovery
  • Financing Long-term Recovery
Year 2 – 2007-2008


  • Prepare PDRPs for pilot community(s)
  • Prepare a Case Study for each demonstration project, documenting the strengths and weaknesses of each approach
Year 3 – 2008-2009


  • Revise the PDRP Standards and Planning Process as Needed Based on the Demonstrations
  • Publish PDRP Best Practices Guidebook
  • Provide Draft Legislation to Close the Loop on the PDRP Requirement
  • Hold Regional Workshops to Present the Standards
  • Initiate a Competitive Grant Program
  • Grants from NOAA and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.
  • Total = $1,895,000


  • Protecting Florida’s Communities

Land Use Planning Strategies and Best Development Practices for Minimizing Vulnerability to Flooding and Coastal Storms

  • Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery and Reconstruction
