2024 Crater One-Year Virtual Progress Workshop

The Petersburg and Hopewell RAFT One Year Progress Review Workshop was held virtually on Friday April 12, 2024. The workshop was an opportunity for both the Cities of Petersburg and Hopewell as well as regional partners in the Crater Planning District Commission (Crater PDC) to come together to reflect on the past twelve months of implementation progress; share successes, lessons learned, and challenges from the implementation of Resilience Action Checklist (RAC) priorities; and explore opportunities for collaboration moving forward at the local and regional levels.

2023 Crater Resilience Action Workshop:

The Crater Region RAFT workshop was held virtually on February 16, 2023. The workshop was hosted by The RAFT Core Team to orient participants to The RAFT process and goals, review the region’s Scorecard results and opportunities for improving Crater resilience, and support and guide participants through the process of developing a draft One-Year “Resilience Action Checklist” (RAC) for each locality. The RAC development process is designed to allow participants to elevate up to five specific actions to improve resilience over the next year. During the workshop, members of The RAFT Core Team provided context for The RAFT, shared Crater resilience findings, and opportunities that surfaced through interviews and focus groups, and facilitated the development of draft resilience action checklists for each locality.
