Following the Heavy Rain Disaster of 1982, many public facilities were
rebuilt in the lower reaches of the Nakashima River Basin, Nagasaki City.
The construction was planned not only to decrease future vulnerability
to flood disasters, but also to restore public facilities to improve the
quality of life. In order to estimate planning of building of public works
for disaster reconstruction, information concerning how residents evaluated
the works was accumulated through questionnaires.
Residents believe that the Heavy Rain Disaster of 1982 gave an impetus
to public works. However, they expressed displeasure with the results
of some of the construction. If the national or local government wishes
to please local residents, they must allow residents to participate in
the planning of reconstruction.
Key words: disaster reconstruction project, residents' evaluation, amenity
resources, questionnaire survey.
