1/20: Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Survey

1/20: Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Survey

We need your input!

The federal government requires states and local governments to have hazard mitigation plans approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that are consistent with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 for a jurisdiction to qualify for Federal Hazard Mitigation Grant funds. Mitigation planning is the process of identifying hazards to which jurisdictions are at risk as well as the development of actions that will reduce or prevent damages from those hazards.

One of the key components of a hazard mitigation plan is public input during the planning process. The purpose of this survey is to collect information from the public to better understand the vulnerabilities within the City, as well as solicit input on needs to best mitigate, or reduce the impacts of hazards before they occur. Your comments will be considered by the City’s planning committee as the LHMP is developed. It should not take more than 5-10 minutes to complete this survey.
