Discovery Areas

Discovery Areas describe the key issues that were identified from the findings of our Preliminary Resilience Assessment that need further research before we can identify initiatives for inclusion in the Resilience Strategy.

Learn more about each of these areas:

Living with Water : Innovative Infrastructure Investments

Advancing + Adapting: How we Live + Move

Building Prosperity: An Economy for All

A Thriving Community: Safe Neighborhoods + Healthy Neighbors

Robust Recovery: PREPlanning for POSTDisaster

Leadership for Tomorrow: Staying Ahead of the Curve

 In addition to the six discovery areas, there are three cross cutting themes:

  • Too many of us are struggling just to find living-wage jobs, affordable housing, and feel safe in our neighborhoods; therefore we need to address Social Equity head on.
  • These complex matters require a multidisciplinary approach and must incorporate Innovation and Technology.
  • As an Intergovernmental Collaboration from the start, GM&B has an opportunity to seek solutions that involve multiple public and private sector partners
