Following a tumultuous 2020, in which Nashville and Davidson County, TN were impacted by a myriad of natural and man-made disasters, the City has redoubled efforts to build resilience in its operations. In planning the path forward, City officials have eschewed a standalone resilience plan in favor of integrating resilience planning across each department. The FUSE Executive Fellow will support the development and implementation of this innovative approach to municipal resilience.
