Public Meeting on Natural Hazard Planning

Location: Fairfield Regional Fire School, 205 Richard White Way, Fairfield, Connecticut 06824
Public Meeting on the Regional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

Floods, hurricanes, thunderstorms, winter storms, and other natural hazards affect residents and businesses every year. These events damage property, cause power outages, block roads, and can cause injuries.

The Connecticut Metropolitan Council of Governments (MetroCOG), which represents the municipalities of Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull is in the process of updating the Regional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.  A Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan is a tool that helps a community understand risks and take specific steps to reduce property damage, injury, and loss of life. This plan discusses the occurrence and consequences of floods, coastal changes, winter storms, tornadoes, hurricanes and tropical storms, earthquakes, and dam failure.  The plan identifies activities that communities can perform before natural hazards occur in order to minimize property damage, risk of life, and the costs that are shared by all.  This update will identify significant changes in risks, vulnerabilities, capabilities, and mitigation actions that have developed since adoption of the previous plan in 2014.

MetroCOG is offering an opportunity for the public to attend a Public Information Meeting where residents, businesses and stakeholders can learn about the plan, ask questions and provide input. The Public Information Meeting will be held on April 25th, 2019 at 7:00PM at the Fairfield Regional Fire School, 205 Richard White Way, Fairfield, Connecticut 06824.
