dc.description.abstract This paper aims to understand the experience of planning in a small town in the disaster recovery phase. This is accomplished through a case study of the 2011 Goderich tornado. The methods used to collect data include a literature review, a resident satisfaction survey, and an interview with the Planner who worked for the Town before and after the tornado around the five year anniversary of the event. Overall, residents were very satisfied with the community's reconstruction after the tornado. The research finds that despite not being prepared for emergencies, the planning function was central to the disaster recovery. It encourages the integration of the planning function into local comprehensive emergency management programs.
