2021 Update of the local
Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Town has hired an outside consultant - Horsley Witten Group - to assist in this year's update of the Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. The Plan is an important guidance document for the Town as FEMA funding in certain emergencies is tied to the existence of an approved Hazards Plan. A public workshop was held the evening of June 2, hosted by the Planning Board, to describe the progress made so far and to gather input from the public about setting priorities for the future. The slide presentation from the workshop is now available for viewing via the Planning Department's landing page on the Town website - you can find it here. As part of the public workshop, the Town launched a community-wide survey to gather additional information from residents about their experiences with natural hazards. We strongly encourage everyone who lives or owns property in Town to complete the survey. Please feel free to share it with your friends and neighbors and encourage them to complete it too!
