A virtual public meeting will be held on Wednesday July 19 from 6:30 – 7:30pm
Reading’s Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee needs the Public’s help completing the Town’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan serves as a strategy for reducing current and future risks of natural hazards and climate change. The public is invited to share their ideas for reducing impacts associated with natural hazards and to learn about the updated plan on Wednesday, July 19th. Approved by FEMA, the plan allows the Town to apply for pre-disaster mitigation grant funding.
Meeting ID: 824 3913 0592
At the meeting, you will have an opportunity to contribute your ideas for making the Town more resilient to natural hazards such as flooding, snowstorms, high winds, and extreme temperatures. This plan is being developed by a Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee comprised of Town leaders and local stakeholders. Jamie Caplan Consulting LLC, a Northampton, MA based firm, is leading this effort on behalf of the Town and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approval, and Town adoption, of the Hazard Mitigation Plan allows the Town to apply for pre- and post-disaster hazard mitigation grant funds.
