From Emergency Services
Buncombe and Madison counties are working together to update their regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. Natural disasters in our area are inevitably going to occur; however, the purpose of this plan is to assess our community’s natural hazard risks and determine how to lessen our vulnerability when disaster strikes.
Your input is needed.
Public input and support are essential parts of this plan. In order to develop the most effective and beneficial plan possible, your input is needed. A public meeting will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 24 from 6-7 p.m. in the auditorium of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College’s Public Safety Training Center location in Woodfin.
All interested residents from the counties and participating jurisdictions are invited to attend the meeting. By applying a collective approach to hazard mitigation plan development, we will contribute to a more resilient community. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, Sept. 24.
An online public survey is available.
