SARASOTA, Fla. - Sarasota County is one of only five in the state working on what is called a Post Disaster Redevlopment Plan.

Instead of just focusing on short term recovery the plan looks at getting the other needs up and running as quick as possible. Things like schools and hospitals but also making sure the tourism industry doesn't go completely away.

The pre-plan looks to save the area millions in dollars by recovering quicker.

ABC 7's Josh Taylor will have the complete story this evening on ABC 7.
