The Leadership Summit Will Feature Four Area Mayors in Panel Discussion

The second Tampa Bay Regional Resiliency Leadership Summit, coordinated by the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council (TBRPC), is set for April 5-6, 2022 at the St. Petersburg Hilton Carillon.

The Leadership Summit, delayed one year due to COVID, will bring together local, state and national leaders to discuss resilience and how to turn the new Tampa Bay Regional Resiliency Coalition’s action plan into reality.

The Resiliency Coalition, formed in 2018, currently includes 31 local governments spanning from Citrus County to Sarasota County. Attendees will hear from experts and leading local governments and will define priorities for regional collaboration. The Coalition members and partner organizations will  discuss goals and actions in the new Regional Resiliency Action Plan to reduce risks and impacts from flooding and sea level rise.

“The three hot topics that panels will focus on are flood risks and insurance; neighborhood-level resilience initiatives and innovative engineering design, and construction for infrastructure that also considers the community,” said Brandi Gabbard, St. Petersburg City Council member and the current Chair of the TBRPC. “We’re asking residents to give us input prior to the Summit in this special survey.”

“We’re delighted that Duke Energy will be the Premier Summit Sponsor,” said Janet C. Long, Pinellas County Commissioner and co-chair of the Regional Resiliency Coalition.

The Leadership Summit will also include the 60th Anniversary Celebration of the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council on the evening of April 5, as well as the 28th annual Future of the Region Awards, which will be the highlight of the luncheon April 6.
