Building Economic Resilience in the Kerr-Tarr Region (North Carolina): Recommendations for Linking Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies and Hazard Mitigation Plans

March 16, 2015

Developed for the Council of Governments for the Kerr-Tarr region of North Carolina, this report identifies ways to align the region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) and its hazard mitigation plans (HMPs), and to incorporate economic resilience into the CEDS. The report outlines the four essential elements of the CEDS and HMPs - planning process, risk assessment, mitigation strategy and plan maintenance - and demonstrates how they can inform each other.  The Kerr-Tar Regional COG covers North Carolina’s predominantly rural Region K, which includes Franklin, Granville, Person, Vance, and Warren Counties.
