Draft Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Ready for Public Comment

After a year and a half of workshops, subcommittee and public meetings across the Hampton Roads region, the DRAFT Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is now ready for Public Review.

Representatives from select communities in the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC), decided to pursue a regional multi-jurisdictional hazard mitigation planning process. The Hazard Mitigation Planning Subcommittee (HMPC) was formed in order to engage in the mitigation planning process and adopt a single updated mitigation plan for the region.

The mitigation plan is required by Section 322 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5165, as amended by the Disaster Mitigation Assistance Act of 2000). The Act requires local jurisdictions to develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans in order to be eligible to receive certain federal mitigation grant funds. The statute also requires that local mitigation plans be updated and revised every five years in order to maintain eligibility for grant funds.

The public is invited to review the draft and provide comments at one of three convenient locations and times listed in the table below. Comments will be accepted through June 21, 2016.
