dc.description.abstractChallenges facing the governance of small and large cities of US coastal areas include a combination of geo-physical issues including sea level rise, saltwater intrusion, and increasing storm surge. (CIG et al., 2007). Coastal planning that evaluates and adopts best practices in adaptation can decrease risks, increase resiliency, and save money in the long term (S. Fl. Regional Climate Center Compact, 2011). One community engaged in climate planning is the City of Satellite Beach, Brevard Co., FL (Parkinson & McCue, 2011). The City, located between the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon, partnered with the East-central FL Regional Planning Council in 2014, on a Florida Dept. of Economic Opportunity grant to initiate a community resiliency planning project in the City. One component involved an online survey hosted by the online planning platform, Metroquest, to identify citizen opinions and preferences to increase community resilience in regards to vulnerabilities associated with coastal changes. The goal of this project was to work with City and EFRPC staff on the processing and analysis of Metroquest survey findings. The objectives follow. -To tabulate, identify and analyze the highest priority vulnerabilities -To determine and analyze the most common response strategies.en_US
