Peoria County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Available for Review
Apr 18, 2017
April 18, 2017 – Floods, thunderstorms, and severe winter weather often cause devastating impacts in Peoria County. Would you like to learn more about what Peoria County is doing to minimize the impacts of these and other natural and man-made hazards? A draft of Peoria County’s Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment. The Plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows Peoria County to maintain eligibility for mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). A Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) that includes representatives from the County is currently updating the Plan with assistance from a consultant. During the Plan update process the HMPC has revisited and updated the Plan’s vulnerability assessment, goals and objectives, and mitigation projects. The HMPC is now seeking public comment and input on the draft plan update.
The comment period will be April 17 through April 28, 2017.
