YOU’RE INVITED: Florida Keys Hurricane Evacuation Public Hearings

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity is hosting three Florida Keys Hurricane Evacuation Modeling Public Workshops to provide information and receive public input on updated hurricane evacuation modeling.

Hurricane evacuation modeling is based on population data from the U.S. Census and simulates how efficiently the current population can evacuate the area before a disaster event. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s 2012 Memorandum of Understanding with Florida Keys communities was informed by hurricane evacuation modeling and 2010 census data and established residential building permit allocations through 2023. Updated hurricane evacuation modeling and 2020 Census data will inform the 2023 Memorandum of Understanding.

Workshops will be held at the following times and locations. All Keys residents are welcome to attend.
