Military Installation Resiliency Review Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council

Pinellas Park, FL

The TBRPC is seeking consulting engineering services to review climate vulnerabilities, critical infrastructure, intergovernmental coordination opportunities, community engagement and impacts to military and civilian populations. The TBRPC prioritized action to promote and enhance climate resiliency through the formation of the Tampa Bay Regional Resiliency Coalition in 2018 to facilitate and promote regional coordination of climate resiliency efforts. The selected consultant will assist the TBRPC in preparing a report concerning Military Installation Resiliency ("MIR").
