Extreme Weather Events, Vacancy, and Recovery 
Date & Time
Friday, September 9, 2022, 8:45 AM - 10:15 AM
Tarik Abdelazim Luis Gallardo

From fires to floods, tornadoes, and blistering heat and cold, extreme weather disasters are leaving more and more American communities with a long road to recovery. In this session, practitioners from three cities impacted by significant storm events—each at different phases of recovery—will share first-hand accounts of how their communities are addressing climate-related vacancy. Attendees will learn how recovery efforts must contend with different aspects of vacant properties, opportunities and challenges to advance long-term resiliency, and what policy reforms could greatly improve a community’s ability to recover effectively, efficiently, and equitably from climate-induced disasters.
