City of Houston Hazard Mitigation Action Plan Public Meeting
We want your input!
The City of Houston will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, July 19th to gather public input for the City of Houston's Hazard Mitigation Plan Update. The meeting is from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the Collier Regional Library; 6200 Pinemont, Houston, TX 77092. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the meeting.
The purpose of the public meeting is to provide a project overview from H2O Partners, Inc., consultant to the project, and solicit information from residents. Public input will help the project team to identify and analyze potential hazards affecting residents and recommend possible actions to reduce their impact.
Hazards can include floods, tornadoes, wildfires, winter storms, and other major disasters.
The goal of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions. Mitigation is defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as sustained actions taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects.
This meeting is open to the public, and all are welcome. If you need an accommodation to participate in this meeting (ex. ASL Interpretation, Captioning, etc.) please contact Jeffrey LaCour in OEM via email at Jeffrey.LaCour@houstontx.gov or call 713.884.4459.
