Resiliency & Recovery

Resiliency & Recovery Plan

Central City is developing a Disaster Resiliency Plan to help protect our citizens, visitors and infrastructure and to plan for such an emergency event.  The plan will address potential for damage to infrastructure, access issues, equipment shortages, alternative transportation routes, and community communications needs.  The importance of this plan was highlighted by the area floods of 2013 and later hillside collapse along the Central City Parkway that isolated the community.  This project is funded through of a grant awarded the City by DOLA.  Various possible disaster scenarios will also be evaluated as part of this process and input for key stakeholder is important for the success of this resiliency plan.  The project is slated to start in November 2016 and end in April 2017.  The final report will be rolled into the City Comprehensive Plan to guide the City well into the future.

NOTICE OF CHANGE IN LOCATION: Tonights meeting has been relocated to Gilpin County Courthouse at 203 Eureka St.

Informational Public Open House

Central City has developed a Disaster Resiliency and Recovery Master Plan (DRRMP) to identify ways that we can make our City more resilient to disaster events.

As part of this planning process, the City is holding a second Open House on Tuesday, April 25th from 6:00-8:00 PM.  This event is open to the public and will take place at City Hall, in the Council Chambers located on the 2nd floor.  All are invited to stop by for a few minutes to learn more about the project. 

Project Background

The DRRMP will address: potential for damage to infrastructure, access issues, equipment shortages, alternative transportation routes, and community communications needs.  The importance of this plan was highlighted by the area floods of 2013 and later hillside collapse along the Central City Parkway that isolated the community.  This project is funded through a grant awarded by the State’s Department of Local Affairs.  Results and information from the DRRMP will be rolled into the City’s Comprehensive Plan (update currently underway) to help guide the City towards a more resilient future.

The DRRMP planning process is scheduled to be completed by May 2017.  A final draft of the Plan document will be made available for public review and comment in April.  Additional information can be found on the project website: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/centralcity/resiliency-recovery
