Atlanta, you're getting a chief resilience officer. The city's sustainability director, Stephanie Stuckey Benfield, is taking on the role.
So what will she do? The short answer is: a lot.
Mayor Kasim Reed said Benfield will come up with a city-wide resilience strategy. That means figuring out a way to tackle the big problems facing Atlanta in the future, he said.
"Such as aging infrastructure and an overloaded transportation network,” Reed said.
Reed also mentioned climate change and income inequality as future threats.
