This Resource Atlas has been compiled to provide a wide variety of useful information to support the land use planning and community development process known as Resilient Monroe. The Atlas begins with an overview of community resilience from economic challenges to climate change. Next is an overview of assets in the Monroe Community, followed by information on options for increasing community resilience, including enhancing economic diversity through placemaking projects. The Atlas also details the public engagement process through interviews, focus groups, public meetings, working groups, a planning charrette, and a community-wide survey, and concludes with a compilation of options for local action which may be needed to achieve the public’s hopes and dreams for Monroe.
