Connecticut Has Standing Committee on Recovery

Connecticut Council of Governments says preparation, resilience key to recovery from disasters

Community resilience — made possible by advance planning — is a key to ensure faster recovery to any future disasters, including weather events, the two chairman of the state Long-Term Recovery Committee told area mayors and first selectmen Wednesday.

The committee is co-chaired by George Bradner, property casualty director for the state Insurance Department, and Mike Lettieri, director of the state Department of Economic and Community Development.

Among the challenges Connecticut faces in creating the resilience it needs to respond to future disasters are the fact that it has 169 independent cities and towns, with many different zoning standards in place, and that legislation doesn’t always support community resilience
