President Obama’s Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force report was released yesterday with 69 recommendations that focus on planning for future storms. It calls for development of a more advanced electrical grid and the creation of better planning tools and standards for storm-damaged communities. Making wireless communications networks more resilient in extreme weather emergencies was another recommendation. City projects, like the Blueway Plan to make the East River more accessible, are already incorporating resiliency efforts into their plans.
