 Countywide PDRP Project

As part of the Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan, we created a Checklist and Flowchart designed to assist homeowners in the rebuilding process. The checklist details the documents that property owners should have on hand pre-disaster that will aid them with redevelopment. The flowchart details the associated permit review process. These tools can help expedite the permitting process in post-disaster situations. Follow the link on the right.

​Sarasota County has been fortunate not to have suffered the devastation of a major disaster in recent history, but there have been some close calls.

In 2004, Sarasota County just missed the tragic impacts of Hurricane Charley which had landfall to the south in Punta Gorda, destroying parts of the city and causing fatalities and injuries.

There is no reason why a hurricane or other disaster could not directly hit Sarasota County. Even without a direct hit from a major hurricane, beach erosion, which will be exacerbated by sea level rise, is a major vulnerability for the county that threatens established neighborhoods and tourism.
For these reasons and others, Sarasota County has taken a proactive approach to potential disaster recovery preparation by initiating a project to develop a Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan (PDRP).
