REGIONAL HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN DRAFT FOR CONVERSE, NATRONA AND NIOBRARA COUNTIES AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT
SEPTEMBER 17, 2018 - Would you like to learn more about what Converse, Natrona and Niobrara counties are doing to minimize the impacts of floods, wildfires, winter storms, hazardous materials incidents, and other hazards? A draft of the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made 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. County planning teams, including representatives from all municipalities, developed the plan with assistance from a consultant. The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and mitigation projects for the counties, with the intent of reducing losses from 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 counties in the Region are 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 your local county emergency management office.
Comments will be accepted through
