The Colorado Resiliency and Recovery Office was formed following the recent floods and fires to put a framework in place to not only recover from a future disaster, but to make things better than before the disaster. The work of the office won the “Gold 2017 National Planning Achievement Award for Environmental Planning” from the American Planning Association. Governor John Hickenlooper describes the framework in light of the word “resiliency” which is part of the official name of the office which will direct all future disasters.
