Washington, D.C. selected for the Rockefeller Foundation 100 Resilient Cities Program Final Round.

Will the selected Chief Resiliency Officer for D.C. report to the Mayor or those that submitted the application to the 100 Resiliency Cities Program?

Washington, D.C. 100 Resilient Cities Program Challenge. LACK OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING, and HOMELESSNESS should be at the top of the list. Overall terrorism is a criminal activity and is handled by over 3/4 of the the federal agencies and other law enforcement offices in the city, from the FBI, CIA, DIA, Federal Protective Service, D.C and neighboring police offices and combined FUSION CENTERS. 

Poor Transportation System currently being addressed at a cost of billions of dollars mandated by the U.S. Dept of Transportation due to mismanaged maintenance plans and scheduling. But the price of transportation costs for average worker that lives outside of the city continues to rise as is affordable housing.

No one discusses RENT CONTROL

       Economic Shifts
       Flooding (Coastal and Rainfall)
       Heat Wave
       Infrastructure Failure
       Lack of Affordable Housing
