Rebuilding after disasters is an opportunity to improve infrastructure. Local authorities and residents will need to make their cost-benefit calculations with system interdependence in mind. Sure, it might cost more to bury power lines, but what if it would prevent power loss during storms and improve the dependency of communications?
Perhaps some of the necessary resources could be raised by increasing the price of cellphone site permits. This kind of increase in resiliency should be valued by operators and perhaps reflected in permit costs.
