A planning committee comprised of representatives from Wright County, the incorporated cities, public school districts, and other stakeholders is currently updating the comprehensive Wright County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Wright County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee is seeking public input for the plan update.
A summary of the plan update effort underway, as well as a questionnaire to capture public opinion and comments, is available online at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Wright-CO-IA. The survey will be available until October 30, 2017. The purpose of this outreach effort is to provide information to the public on the plan that is being updated as well as gain public input.
The plan update will address a comprehensive list of hazards—ranging from severe winter storms and flooding to hazardous materials incidents and tornadoes—and will assess the likely impacts of these hazards on communities and school districts in Wright County. This effort will also update current strategies and identify additional strategies to reduce the vulnerability of people and property in the participating jurisdictions from the impacts of hazards as well as maintain eligibility for participating jurisdictions for mitigation funding programs administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
