October 2022 marks a decade since Superstorm Sandy, the most destructive hurricane ever to make landfall on the U.S. east coast. This extreme weather event tested all aspects of NYC’s infrastructure, as well as that of adjacent communities in New Jersey and Connecticut, and caused $70 billion worth of damage.
In response, and at the request of the New York City Council, Urban Green convened the 200-member Building Resiliency Task Force to develop recommendations for improving building resiliency and maximizing preparedness for future weather emergencies.
On October 12, join us as we look at the progress NYC has made since Sandy and the work that remains. Experts will look back at significant changes made to the building code and zoning resolution and examine how resiliency thinking has changed over the past decade. What are the remaining opportunities for improving resilience, and what new threats should we be prepared to address?
