Converse County Hazardous Mitigation Plan Draft

County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Draft for

Converse County

Available for Public Review and Comment

 

 

Would you like to learn more about what Converse County is doing to minimize the impacts of floods, wildfires, winter storms, hazardous materials incidents, and other hazards?  A draft of the Hazard Mitigation Plan update is now available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows each county and municipalities to be eligible for mitigation grant funding from FEMA.  A County planning team, including representatives from all municipalities, developed the plan over the past 12 months with assistance from a consultant.  The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and mitigation projects for the counties, with the intent of reducing losses from future hazard events before they occur again.  A public survey and series of public workshops were held during the planning process to solicit input on the hazards and ideas for mitigation projects. The County is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval. The final plan will be adopted by each participating county and municipality before it becomes official. More information can be obtained from Converse County Emergency management. 

 

The comment period will run September 4-September 18, 2018.  An online form to provide feedback on the plan can be accessed here:
