The public is invited to learn about the regions’ Hazard Mitigation Plan and to voice their opinions about how each municipality should mitigate risk. The meeting includes an introduction to the contents of the recently developed Hazard Mitigation Plan with an emphasis on actions to mitigate risk to people, buildings, and infrastructure from natural hazards such as floods, winter storms, and hurricanes. Take the opportunity to voice your concerns and share your ideas. Participants will answer several multiple choice and open-ended poll questions as well as have a chance to ask questions and participate in a discussion. Plan developers want to know how you recommend your community protect itself from natural hazards.
South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) has updated the region’s Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan, your community’s tool to prevent damage from natural hazards.
Prior to the meeting, share your opinions by taking the South Central Connecticut Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey. The information provided will help the Planning Team to better understand local concerns and issues.
Survey closes on January 13, 2023

This plan names natural hazards and their potential impacts to each community. The plan then identifies activities each community may take to mitigate identified risks. This Plan makes each city and town eligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) pre-disaster funding. This grant funding may be used for projects that mitigate risk to vulnerable residents, build resilient infrastructure and transit systems, and protect the natural environment.
