Utah Residents Want to Be More Resilient to Disasters

Here is an upbeat story about residents of Utah wanting, and are willing to pay for, more resilience. Envision Utah poll shows Utah residents want greater ‘resiliency’ to disasters.

A significant majority of Utah residents are willing to pay more for their homes and utilities if it means they have a greater ability to bounce back and resume their normal lives after a flood, fire or earthquake strikes.

Envision Utah has released the latest component of its “Your Utah, Your Future” survey ā€” focusing on disaster resiliency ā€” charting four likely scenarios on the level of preparedness and response that might exist in 2050.

Hate to rain on a parade – but “answering a survey saying they are willing to pay more” and “will pay more” are two ENTIRELY different things… My wild guess is that if they surveyed the actual number of houses built for $5-$10K additional with those features mentioned — they’d find that Utahns are not following up their words with action?
