Callway County Mitigation Planning Public Survey

The federal government requires all states and local governments to have hazard mitigation plans approved by FEMA that are consistent with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Approved mitigation plans are required to maintain eligibility for certain types of federal Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grants.

A planning committee comprised of representatives from Callaway County, the incorporated cities, and the public school districts is currently developing an update to the comprehensive Callaway County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan with a strategy to reduce the vulnerability of people and property in the planning area to the impacts of hazards and to remain eligible for mitigation funding programs from FEMA.

One of the key components of a hazard mitigation plan to public input during the planning process. The planning committee will be evaluating information on the hazards that will be evaluated as well as your opinions on the types of activities that should be considered to reduce future impacts. Your comments will be considered by your community’s representatives on the planning committee as the plan is developed. Please take a few moments to fill out the online survey (link below). Thank you for your participation.
