Organizational resilience, Risk assessment, Emergency management -- Oregon -- East Portland


To execute the East Portland Resilient Island Project, RIP City Planning has partnered with Portland’s Disaster Resilience and Recovery Action Group (DRRAG), an organization composed of representatives from Portland Bureaus of Development Services, Emergency Management, Environmental Services, Water, Planning and Sustainability, Transportation, and Parks & Recreation, as well as Portland State University’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions. DRRAG and RIP City Planning see this project as a prime opportunity to better understand and enhance the East Portland Community Center's role in fostering social connectivity and community-level disaster planning. Through abundant engagement efforts with local community groups and EPCC patrons, we aim to co-create a community-led document reenvisioning EPCC as the center of a 'resilient island' during disaster events and non-emergency times.
