Committee Charge:

The committee will comprehensively assess the resilience and health of the beaches coastline and the St. Johns River system, including its tributaries, wetlands and riparian land. As part of this assessment, it will review city environmental, land use and infrastructure policies that affect these valuable and often vulnerable county assets and the health and safety of our citizens. The committee may propose policy recommendations for consideration by the Council and the Mayor and executive branch agencies. I am directing the committee to complement any proposals with definitive, practical actions plans. The committee may seek advice from public and private subject matter experts and will encourage maximum public participation in its work . It should consider recent work and recommendations of the Planning Department and its adaptation action area work group and the valuable work accomplished by the Northeast Florida Regional Council on resiliency and sea level rise. I am pleased and committed to lead this critical initiative and look forward to receiving the committee's work product as they move along.
