Recovery consists of restoring and rebuilding schools, roads, businesses and livelihoods after a disaster.  The reason we plan for recovery is so that all of the partners involved – the school district, the city, the Beaches, the local businesses, and others – can ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed after a disaster. Every person has a voice in recovery. Recovery is not only a chance to return to normal, but a chance to make normal better. It is a chance to fix what was not right before.

As a part of this process, the City of Jacksonville identifies short- and long-term alternative housing for residents and workers who may come to Jacksonville to help rebuild after a disaster.
