Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Public Meeting:
July 29, 2019
7:00 PM – Multi-Media Room, Mulvey Municipal Center
866 Boston Post Road, Town of Westbrook
The Town of Westbrook is in the process of updating the Town’s Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP Update). The purpose of the HMP Update is to update the hazards risk assessment, mitigation strategies and actions to reduce the loss of life and property resulting from natural and climate-related hazards. In addition, a key part of this update is to document the progress made in implementing actions outlined in the 2014 MHMP.
As a part of the planning process, the Town created a local planning team made up of local officials to assist in leading the development of the plan. The Town has retained GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. to assist the planning team in the preparation of the HMP Update. Funding for this activity is being provided by the Town of Westbrook.
A critical component of the planning process is open public involvement where the Town will provide the public with the opportunity to provide input and comments at two public meetings. The first public meeting will be held on July 29, 2019, at 7:00 PM at the Town of Westbrook Mulvey Municipal Center, 866 Boston Post Road.
The focus of the first public meeting is to present:
1) The planning framework,
2) Identified Town critical assets, and
3) Natural and climate-related hazard characterizations for the Town of Westbrook.
During the meeting, the public is invited to make comments or suggestions. All comments received from the public will be documented and considered for inclusion in the HMP Update.
