The 15 municipalities in south-central Connecticut, with the help of the South Central Regional Council of Governments, are preparing an update to the region’s Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The plan names natural hazards and their potential impacts to each community, including West Haven. It then identifies activities each community may take to mitigate identified risks. The plan makes each city and town eligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency pre-disaster funding.
The grant money may be used for projects that mitigate risk to vulnerable residents, build resilient infrastructure and transit systems, and protect the natural environment. The plan is each community’s tool to prevent damage from natural hazards. Take the opportunity to voice any concerns and share ideas on a Zoom meeting from 6-7 p.m. Monday.
