We are in a planning process to become less vulnerable to natural disasters and man-made hazards, and your participation is important. Hampton Roads communities are jointly updating their Hazard Mitigation Plans and combining the documents, which were adopted between 2011 and early 2015. The purpose of these plans is to identify and assess each community’s hazard risks (such as floods, hurricanes and winter storms), and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.
There are two ways you can provide feedback to the Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee:
1. Take our survey. The survey questionnaire provides an opportunity for Hampton Roads residents to share opinions and participate in the ongoing mitigation planning process taking place with Hampton Roads communities. The information provided will help us better understand hazard concerns and may lead to mitigation activities that help lessen the impact of future hazard events.
2. Review the draft plan. The August 2016 working draft of the Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is posted here for your review. Please provide comments or questions to John Sadler who may be reached by email or by phone at 757-420-8300. Please be as specific as possible in your comments and provide page numbers or section numbers pertinent to your remarks.
An additional opportunity to attend a public forum is forthcoming. Stay tuned for additional information.
