Abstract The importance of community resilience has become increasingly recognized in emergency management and

post-disaster community well-being. To this end, three seismic resilience planning initiatives have been

conducted in the U.S. in the last decade to envision the current state of community resilience. Experts who

participated in these initiatives confronted challenges that must be addressed for future planning initiatives.

We interviewed eighteen participants to learn about the community resilience planning process, its

characteristics, and challenges. Conducting qualitative content analysis, we identify six main challenges to

community resilience planning: complex network systems; interdependencies among built environment systems;

inter-organizational collaboration; connections between the built environment and social systems;

communications between built environment and social institutions? experts; and communication among

decision-makers, social stakeholders, and community members. To overcome the identified challenges, we

discuss the capability of human-centered simulation modeling as a combination of simulation modeling and

human-centered design to facilitate community resilience planning.
