Disaster Planning Public Meeting

Public Meeting for Disaster Planning!

The public is invited to participate in a meeting regarding the development of the South Central Region Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Town of North Branford, in conjunction with the South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) and its municipalities are preparing an update to the Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to identify and assess natural hazard risks (such as flooding, winter storms, and hurricanes) and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks. Public participation is essential!

The Public Meeting will take place on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the Town Council chambers, 909 Foxon Road, North Branford, as part of the Planning and Zoning meeting. This plan is essential to the Town of North Branford’s efforts to identify ways to lessen the impacts of natural hazards such as hurricanes, floods and severe winter weather. During this public meeting, the contents of the plan will be introduced and members of the public will have the opportunity to discuss ideas regarding risk reduction.

All community members are welcome to attend!

To help increase public participation SCRCOG has launched the South Central Connecticut Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey that provides an opportunity for everyone in the planning area to share his or her opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information provided will help the Planning Team to better understand local concerns and issues as expressed by citizens of the Region, and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impacts of future disasters.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and none of the information provided will be attributed to individuals directly.  The survey is located on the SCRCOG website and will only take about 5 minutes to complete. It is available in English and in Spanish. To participate in the survey, go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CTMitigation
