Erie County Seeks Public Input on Hazard Risk Reduction
The Erie County Department of Planning & Community Development, in partnership with the Erie County Department of
Public Safety, is in the process of preparing an update to the Erie County Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan is updated every 5 years. It supports hazard mitigation grant funding, but its primary
purpose is to set goals that when implemented, will help reduce the negative impacts of future hazards, including flooding, winter storms, tornadoes and many other hazards.
The County is seeking public input that will help to gauge the level of public support for a variety of risk reduction
projects such as improved flood controls, upgrades to critical infrastructure, planning for community shelters, and the equipment needs of emergency responders. Your participation in the public
survey will help us to reduce Erie County’s vulnerability to future hazards.
Anyone wishing to take that survey should visit: https://forms.gle/Dayp1JbT8ddcR6mU9. The survey will remain available through November 23, 2022. All responses are completely anonymous.
Please help us by responding to our public survey, and by forwarding this notice to others who may be interested.
