Activity Code: W053
Date: Wednesday, April 17
There is life after a natural disaster! Discover how the small town of North Utica, Ill., rebounded after a 2004 tornado devastated the downtown business district and claimed the lives of nine residents. Tour the revitalized downtown and learn the process the small town employed to respond to the community’s physical destruction—and the role Illinois planning law played in shaping that response. Come away with a basic hazard mitigation plan that can be reconfigured to meet any community’s standards and culture. Transportation: Motorcoach, walking. Includes lunch.
