Goal: Create a Resilient Community

Article Index


We will achieve resilience in McKinley Park by making natural systems, economic, and social structures more durable for years to come.


By creating a resilient community, McKinley Park can prepare for and recover from acute shocks and chronic stress es both within and outside of the neighborhood. This requires making infrastructure, natural systems, and economic and social structures more durable. In addition to rebounding quickly from, for instance, stronger storms and frequent flooding, the community can actually capitalize on these challenges. By pooling resources, deploying new technologies, and strengthening local capacity, McKinley Park can plan collaboratively to provide essential services even as federal and state support continues to diminish. Our economy and the vitaliy of our skilled workforce to enhance access and services and improve future pathways to middle-wage job opportunities can also promote resiliency.
